My daughters go to W&M and love it! All of their teachers ate so caring and thoughtful! Any time there's an issue with one of my kids I can just shoot an email and I needn't worry! I am incredibly happy with the facilities and education my children reveive here!

Unfortunately, I disagree with the review below. Although the arts and sports programs at the school are amazing, that does not cut it. The teachers, for teh most part, are too concerned about testing stuents, and not concerned enough about their learning. In many cases the teachers themselves are not well educated. The school administration are not worried about what is best for the children, and the school is underfunded.

I am a student of this school, and I personally can say that it's one of the best I ve heard of. The teachers push you and not mean, they are willing to hear what you have to say and answer your questions. The music, art and sports are amazing. Being on the basketball team we have done very well and most of the students are in more then one after school activity. We have a lot of talent in the sports and art departments. The school is always clean and we have many supplies within reach. Parents are constantly involved in everything that the students do. They go on field trips and you will find many parents volunteering and helping out with any fundraiser or school function we have.

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.
