The structure of the school day is not beneficial for early childhood education. The lack of socialization and play available had a negative effect on our child. The teachers are inexperienced and appeared scripted as opposed to genuine. This school was not a good fit for our family.
I love this school! My grandaughter is in kindergarten and already reading an entire book on her own! Example (The giving tree), that right there says alot for the teachers there! Great job teachers and staff! Singing in Italian, Spanish, and doing sign language soooo impressed, brings tears to my eyes to see her absorb so much! I share little videos of her doing this and people are amazed at her for being only 5. This school knows this is when it is crucial to establish a wide variety of teachings and they will only grow with this knowledge and expand! Its too bad its takes a lotery to get this type of education, it should be mandatory all schools have this type of education/structure and (fresh blood) who are enthusiastic to teach it! We were concerned about the long day, but it's true she adjusted to it fine, she never complains and loves it! So fortunate she was chosen! Proud grammy of Aubrey ! :D Thank You BVP
There is a lot of focus in RI about NECAP test scores. While BVP Elementary 1 is successful in this regard, it is the additional focus on Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Discipline and Enthusiasm that strikes a chord with me. These traits are just as important if not more important than high test scores. These are the elements that will stay with an individual for the rest of their lives.
This school is one of the best, the teachers are amazing and the school environment is friendly and inviting. My child is being prepared for a successful future in a fun environment as well as helping her to integrate PRIDE (Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Discipline and Enthusiasm) values not only in school but in the community as well. I'm so glad my child is a student here.
