Posted December 28, 2008

Both my daughters attend Hope Elementary School. I truly feel they are receiving a private school education. Their teachers are well trained and loving. We could not be happier.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted November 26, 2007

First of all, I don't know where they get eleven students per teacher. It says that on multiple websites and it can't be true. My son is in second grade and they are over twenty and last year was close to twenty. Hope is a nice, clean school with good kids and nice teachers. They lack innovation and excitement. My son is bored most of the time. The communication style is out dated. Many teachers don't use email. If there was another option around I would pull him out and send him somewhere more innovative.

It was such a great pleasure and relief of my son having a teacher being so considerate and loving. She has brought out hidden qualities and has made him more assertive of himself. As a kindergartner, he has truly learned so very much from her in basic skills and social behavior by games, handicraft, etc.

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.
