I attended Hugh B Bain Jr. High School from 1966=1969. It was the number one junior high school in the state at that time. It saddens me too see that it has slipped so much. My teachers were all excellent.. Their only purpose in teaching was to ensure that the students learned and met or exceeded their intellectual capabilities. It also saddens me to see the educational system in general in this country go downhill. All the politicians are interested in now is if the students can pass a test, not if they have learned anything.

Hugh B. Bain Middle School is a well rounded school with an abundant amount of extra curricular activities offered through Bain +2 (after school program), respectful students, and caring teachers that go above and beyond.

The school is be suitable academically and the teachers are doing a fine job teaching. The majority of the students are respectful, but as in any school, there are some that need further teachings in respect.

Hugh B. Bain is a high performing middle school. The school's motto is 'traditionally the best' because it is a school that challenges students academically. Students are respectful and participate in many community service activities throughout the year. Bain upholds its traditions and celebrates its diversity. This school provides students with the support services and help they need to be successful. Bain is an excellent school.
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted January 7, 2007

I have found Bain Middle School to not have a suitable amount of athletic programs for the children and extracurricular activities. I find the parents to be uninvolved and the academic programs superior in both of the other middle schools.

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.
