My kids LOVE Eden park. We moved here a couple of years ago because my oldest son was always being bullied at others schools but when he started Eden Park he felt like it was home. The teachers and staff are excellent this is the best public school you will find in ri. I just bought a house around Eden Park just so my children can still attend. Highly recomend it to anyone!

My son is a student at Eden Park. I think the teachers and staff are wonderful. Also, Ms Desmaris will not be returning this year, and she will be missed. I'm sure the new principal will be terrific as well. The school overall is a good school. Afterschool activities are great as well. My son is already looking forward to starting in a couple of weeks.

This is an ecellent school! I am very pleased with the principal, teachers and staff. There are several school activities throughout the year for the students and their families. I think it is very important to keep the families involved. When the family is involved and excited about the school and it's programs, the children are more excited as well. My daughter's teacher helped build her confidence in reading and has been there for her when she needed extra encouragement. My daughter started the year not wanting to go to 'Big Girl School', but after 3 days she loved it and gets upset when she is sick and can not attend school.

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.
