Posted April 26, 2014

I graduated from Cranston High School East in 1972. I received and excellent education. I furthered my education and became a doctor. No, it was not easy, but it was not that hard either. The reason is because of all of the great teachers and curriculum that I had at CHSE. The only purpose that the teachers had was to ensure that the students received an excellent education and knew the material. I had a chemistry teacher who stayed after school one night until 5:00 p.m. to explain a chemistry concept to me. If that is not dedication and commitment then I do not know what is. It saddens me a great deal to see that the school is not what it used to be academically. All that the politicians are interested in is if you can pass a useless standardized test, not if you actually learned anything to prepare you to go on to college or life in general. SO, SO SAD. CHSE was one of the best high schools in the state when I attended.

Needs more discipline and need to enforce the dress code. Principal is very good and is trying to get hold of the situation.

I think Cranston east does a terrible job with parent involvment.Through much personal experience I realize there are a lot of children but they tend to focus on the troubled or excelling children and not the middle kids that are slipping away.

East I have found to have less in academic programs then the alternate (West). I find the athletic program to be good, however less funded. The parent involvement is very little.

This school is great, my child just graduated, the schools guidence system is right on top of things like college for instance. The only thing I didnt like was the fact that Warwick schools you would need 22 credits to graduate and Cranston schools it was only 18.

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.
