The School & it's staff are tremendous. You feel safe sending your kids there because you know that everyone working in that building cares for them, and wants the best for them. the Principal Jay Decristofaro is a true leader, and works his butt off to make this a great learning environment for the kids.

This public school is similar to a private school in it's approach to education. There are many resources used outside of the normal classroom setting. This is a top notch school!

Most of the teachers are very diciplined and organized!

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.
