My kids attend this school. The teachers and the reading and literacy specialists are great. The kindergarten teacher Mrs Case is a gem! They are very involved and keep parents well informed and involved. I couldn't hope for better when it comes to the teachers, however it makes me feel terrible to bring my kids in, and every single morning, the screaming, drilling, and obnoxious hollering that comes out of the principal makes me wish I could avoid the front door so that's not the first thing my kids hear upon entering school in the morning. I'm afraid my kids will start shouting to get people to listen to them instead of employing a more respectful and civil tactic.

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.
