Both of my children have gone through this school, and I have to say WHAT A WONDERFUL SENSE OF COMMUNITY! The teachers here are second to none. Caring compassionate human beings, I can t say enough about them. Outstanding school! Same for Martin Middle School..The administration there is WONDERFUL! I have yet to have a concern that wasn t immediately addressed. WE ARE HAPPY PARENTS OF TWO HONOR, HAPPY STUDENTS!!

We attended the jump rope session yesterday and had a great time. The kids at KHS are so polite and respectful. Two great qualities every kid should have. Our two grandchildren love the school and it shows that the adults in the school love the kids. Thanks for making school a place where kids love to be. Emma & Owens grandparents.

Kent Heights is a great school! All my children have gone through this school. The Principal is outstanding and so are the teachers. All the staff have the students first on their list and making sure that their education experience is a great one. Grades 3rd thru 5th have Smart Boards in every classroom and the teachers are constantly going to Professional Develpment to make the everday learning better and more fun. I am very pleased with Kent Heights and recommend any family with young children to buy a house in the Kent Heights area. The school is great because of the great leadership and professionalism of the Principal.

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.
