We moved from out of state. Our duaghter was in private school prior to coming to Washington Oak. Now she is in her second year in this school and we could not be happier. We feel that our daughter is being challenged and encouraged to develop a love of learning. The teachers and administrators are responsive and truly love what they do. We highly recommend this school.

I am a parent of 3 children. All 3 of my kids attended Washington Oak School. I have been very pleased with programs academically and extracurricular activites offered to them. The school parental involvement is very high. The parents are often invited to participate in the classroom as well as after school activities. The teachers and support staff at the school have all been very competent, helpful and supportive to me and my family.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Rhode Island used the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. GreatSchools ratings currently reflect 2013 test data; the ratings will be updated when the latest NECAP science data is made public and available in the summer of 2014. The NECAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Rhode Island. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
