We moved to Cumberland from MA over ten years ago. Both my children went through Garvin. My oldest had some educational difficulties during our time of transfering to a new a school. The teachers and administration were very helpful and supportive in giving my child whatever tools he needed. For the most part, the teachers at Garvin are dedicated, supportive, communicative and caring. In the ten years of sending my children there, I haven't had one bad experience. In fact, I'm surprised over and over by their dedication. Thanks Garvin!

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.
