3 kids have run through here and I couldn't want more from a school. They helped dyslexic and aspergers kid stabilize with reading, they helped behavior kid stabilize with his disruptive tendencies, and it's a community-based and grounded caring school for all. Teachers live in the area, and there's just a level of responsibility and accountability that are unparalleled. I would give it more stars if I could.

Maybe, but you can't compete in a spelling bee - if you can't all be winners, then you're gonna have to settle for being losers.

I had two girls that attended this school. They both had excellent teachers who were very involved and interested in every child doing their best and achieving their goals. The teachers and principal would not tolerate bullying or name calling. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this school.

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.
