Posted August 10, 2008

I graduated as part of the class of '07 and I loved Compass. I felt like I learned a lot and that I also grew as a person. I recently finished my first year of highschool and was pretty well prepared (there is, naturally nothing that makes going from a class of 9 kids to one of 450 easy, but I will never regret compass).

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.
