NORTH CUMBERLAND MIDDLE SCHOOL IS SO TOMORROW FRIDAY MY CAT IS SO I WONDER WHAT IM HAVING FOR WATCHING TELEVISION TONIGHT I AM EXCITED TO GET HOME AND EAT SOME LARD.


Posted May 30, 2009

I am a student at North Cumberland Middle School, and it is one of the best I have ever attended. The teachers work hard to help you and make learning fun. They also have awesome class trip s like the Washington DC trip and Quebec trip.

There is a need to keep in contact with teachers and administrators. Children in this school can get lost in the mass of other students. If you keep communications open your child should do ok. You can not let your guard down or you will be disappointed with the school.

I was a student at NCMS and while I dispise the Cumberland public school system, this school is a good one. I liked most of my teachers. They were fun and had different ways of teaching. Without Ms. Matega as my resource teacher I would have never passed my math classes.

I am a student at NCMS, and I can vouch for many of the students and parents when they say this place needs some work. The teachers are narrow-minded and focus on all of the wrong things. The teachers definitely need to come together, and communicate with the students and teachers better.

School lacks individual attention and after school help. Some teachers fail to provide help nor recognize Tactile Learners. Teacher need to educated on different types of learning.

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.
