I rate the school 3 stars because the staff are horrible, the secretary is rudest person I've come across and the principal isnt any better. My son just completed 3rd grade and the only homework he ever brought home was math, which is good but they also need to work on other subjects. The teachers are great and The school its self is very nice.

I am proud of my daughter's school because of the great support they give to the community and the wonderful educational efforts the entire staff give to the children. The communication between the parents and teachers are received very well on both parts. It's a happy environment and a balanced and structured school on behalf of their great Principle, Mr. Britto. My husband and I love the school and the positive memories we will share with our daughter(s). Thank you and Good luck Hennessey Hero's!! Sincerely, Karen Cahir

This is a really good school for our kids. Alot has to do with leadership at the school and at home with parents. Also, this school has earned the Blue Ribbon Award, which is a great achievement. The teacher really do an excellent job with the children and we are privledged to have them.

This school is one of the best, if not the best, in the east providence school system. The principal, Patricia Barlow along with the many talented teachers are the driving force behind having such a well performing school.

i think the school needs to stay on top of there students learning abilities. i feel that two of my children slipped through the system with little math skills even after several discussions with the teachers and principal. i also think that they need to pay a little more attention to children with learning disibilities. they need more teachers to spend time with them or the same will happen with them.
