Ashton elementary school is the school i went to i enjoyed every minute of it between the teachers the amazing principal and the nurse. They are all such great people, and they do everything in their power to protect and educate the students.

My children are not challenged and receive no individualized attention. The teachers are not excited about education here any more. It's a shame because I heard that they really used to be. The principal is not a very strong leader.

Ashton School is a place where children, teachers and parents work together as a family. It is a warm and supportive learning environment for all who enter through its doors. The teachers are motivated and dedicated to providing their students with interesting lessons while meeting individual needs.

There are many issues beginning with bias and incompetent teachers who outright are protected by the union. Not all, but a few of them (the teachers) wholy do not care about the children and have made this a place of comfort to earn a living. very upsetting and unfortunate as 5 years ago I moved to this area specifically for the great school reputation. It is disheartening. I will pass this link to many other parents of the school. Thank you.

My daughter was a student at Mercy-Mount for Kindergarten, and then transferred to Ashton for First grade. I must say that I did not find much difference in the quality of teaching and curriculum. All my experiences were positive and my daughter loved Ashton. and loved her teacher. I found it to be an excellent 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.
