Posted April 17, 2014

Principal and some staff are gossip queens and bully children. Bunch of women acting like high school girls. Would give Zero stars if possible
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 9, 2014

This school is unbelievable! If you want memories of Mother/Son or Father/Daughter events. Stay away from having your child attend this school. I have no option, because we cannot sell our home. Kent Heights was my option for my kids, but unfortunately, I was not on that side for the kids to attend. Principal is lacking todays' technology. School can definitely do better with the correct leadership!

The principal has a severe issue with acting as though she's better than any parent/teacher who comes foward with a problem. She's more concerned with her image than with the well being of students. My daughter and many others in her class were being assaulted severely by a young boy and the principal absolutely refused to do anything about it. Pure disgrace. What happened to zero tolerance??

Principal is a lackey for anyone who has a problem. Will not back up decisions of others in educational team if decisions are not nice to hear for parents. School is unable to provide basic needs for services to be provided effectively.
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted October 9, 2008

I went there for elementary school and I loved it! It was so much fun and the teachers are great, and the principal works hard to make the school a better place!

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.
