We love Jamestown School. We have a child in PreK and one in second grade. The principal is at all events and obviously cares about the kids. Most teachers are wonderful, but as is true anywhere, you need to find the right fit for your child. Some of the aides are cranky. Academically, they score very well on the standards testing, but could be reaching higher, offering more (e.g., foreign language, programming) to compete with the number of private schools on Aquidneck Island. Overall, a solid school in a charming town.

Melrose school is full of the sweetest, smartest hard working teachers and caring staff. I have three kids in this school and all are happy, active and learning appropriately (I'm a former Massachusetts public school teacher, certified grades 5-12). We randomly found Jamestown when my husband was previously stationed in Nwpt, and this time, we elected to buy a home and hopefully retire from the military and become Jamestowners. Our kids already consider themselves "from" here. This town is Mecca for outgoing, kind, positive and successful people. If you can afford to live here, do.

Melrose is an excellent small town public school. As a military member with a special needs child (autism), the Melrose staff and the special education staff was more than happy to do whatever we needed to get the help we needed. By far one of the best public school experiences we've had in the country. The preschool is only half day and appeared to us as more play oriented rather than academic, but being able to have both children at the same school was a definite bonus.

Enthusiastic teachers, responsive administration, safe environment, student differentiation, good extra-curricular activities, great parent involvement. A top-notch elementary school. My sons attend kindergarten and 2nd grade there.
