Brown avenue was a godsend to me .I had been trying to get my son who desperately needed special ed, the resources he needed for about 4 years from another school system.(they told me my son's ed development was behind but not that far behind and there were other children that were far worse then him "sorry". Within 1 month of moving the Brown Avenue summer team had him assessed and a handwritten IEP was made for him due to the computer system being down. Then when he started in September they reassessed him again in 3 weeks and revised a new IEP. I can't thank them enough they have been a life saver to my son. Without them he would have been lost in the system, of red tape. In 3rd grade he had a wonderful teacher Mrs Leone wo worked miracles, and she also sang awesome in her classes too! So refreshing to see enthusiam in there classes. LOVE them ALL. Wonderful principal too !

Both of my children graduated from Brown Ave. This is an outstanding school. The administration and parents work hand in hand to create the best learning environment for all children, no matter their level of capability. We moved to this area so our children could attend this small but phenomenal school and it was the right choice!

Brown Ave. is a wonderful school. The principal is great with the children and parents. My only comments would be that more parents should be involved. It was a great experience for my son.

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.
