My son began in the preschool here the year it started, had 1 &1/2 years in the preschool and is now in Pre-K. My daughter is now enrolled in the preschool program as well. I cannot emphasize enough how pleased we are at our kids' growth, both academically and as individuals. The preschool & prek staff are superb, as are the other teachers in the school & older school children who act as mentors for the younger children. I have found the families who attend to be super helpful and friendly. We feel so fortunate that we found the right schhol with the right balance of education, nurturing, faith, family and community.
I enrolled my first child in the Pre-K program in 2010. I had heard AMAZING things about the director/teacher, and decided to give this school a chance (I live in North Kingstown). Not only did the class and the teacher live up to my expectations, it far surpassed them!!! My son learned more than I could imagine any 4/5 y/old learning in a Pre-K. He was taught more then just what you could learn with pen and paper. He studied acting, music (violin!), art, yoga and so MUCH MORE!!!! If anything, this Pre-K overpreparred him for Kindergaten!!!! I was so happy with this program, I decided to stay at ASA and send my oldest to Kindergarten and my youngest to Preschool. I can say that I have been thrilled here, and would recommend ASA to any parent!!!
I am a middle school student & student Chaplin here and i have been going here since 1st grade this is the BEST school ever!
ASA follows in the traditions of the old NCCRS. It instills moral values and a wholesome atmosphere that is so important in todays society. The course work is challenging and the teachers recognize that there are all kinds of learners and work hard to accomodate all learning styles. Its a true gem on Aquidneck Island that offers a quality schooling in a nurturing environment. My daughter has learned so much about being a good student and person by the examples of kindness and consistency she sees everyday from her teachers. The principal works very hard to maintain high standards for the school, and works very hard at encouraging a close knit atmosphere at the schhol. Takea tour, you will not be disappointed!
My son LOVES this school and I am so very pleased with the progress my son has made since September. You must visit because I know you will be more than welcomed to the school as soon as you walk through the doors like I was when I was school searching. The children are so pleasant and there is always someone there happy to assist you. The Summer Camp and Extended Day is faboulous.
Moved to RI for NWC. Started kids at All Saints, but pulled them out because a problem student in one of our kids' classes. Administration would not do anything about it--basically in denial of ANY problems going on at school. We were part of a mass exodus that took our children elsewhere. Hindsight, I should have put my kids in the other Catholic school by Fort Adams, or moved to Middletown/Portsmouth. The public schools are better there. Actually, I should have just homeschooled... If i could give negative stars I would.
I went to each private school on Aquidneck Island and found All Saints to the most friendly and welcoming schools than all the others. My son has been in school nearly 3 months now and I can not believe how much he has accomplished. All Saints is a wonderful family oriented school. And there summer camp is just fabulous...Some days I send my son to Extended day and now he begs me to stay after...They are always doing projects with the kids...I simply love ALL SAINTS and so does my son.
Please do not allow the one or two negative comments below to dissuade you from enrolling your child at ASA. This is a school that offers fantastic programs and is academically rigorous, producing students who routinely are accepted at prestigous high schools. Extracurriculars include soccer, basketball, cross country, chorus, instrument lessons, voice, and an annual spring musical that rivals any productions you will find at local high schools. My children are happy and nurtured in this close community environment. Older children routinely interact with younger students as mentors and role models. I would not send them anywhere else.
All Saints Academy has no programs and does not have friendly teachers.
What an amazing experience ASA has been for our son. I am so glad we pulled him out of the Newport Public schools! He has flourished here. Mr. Dillon is a wonderful principal!
No gym. Things are the same as 15 years ago when I graduated from ASA. Curriculum not up to par, once child leaves ASA they are behind. Mr. D has not made a difference in the school other than awards given by Kwiana Club. School is very clicky. Tuition goes up every year. Diocese is useless.
All Saints Academy provides a very welcoming, spiritual and nurturing atmosphere Academically I feel we are definitely on track , the Principal Mr. Dillon, along with his teaching staff are very motivated and committed to challenging their students to excel, to be the best they can be. The students and staff are also strongly committed to helping the community with food drives, Nursing home visits , cardss and letters to our troops and veterans. My daughter participates in music, Spanish, art, computers and also is a member of chorus and the cheer squad. All Saints Academy also has a wonderful buddy program that pairs the younger students with older students. My daughter enjoyed her 6th grade buddy last year and also reading to her very own 1st grade buddy. An A++ to Mr. Dillon, the teaching staff and students keep up the good work!!
Our child has been at this school, has grown creatively, spiritually, independently, and still has a warm, nurturing atmosphere to walk into every day. This could not be accomplished without such a wonderful Principal, and all of the staff there. The school is growing in so many ways, and so are the teachers and students! Thank you for such a wonderful environment!
Sending my daughter there was the best thing I ever did for her. She could read level 1 books by mid year in kindergarden, and she was learning spanish one day a week. I am a single mom with no asistance and I can do this for her. There are scalarships there for anyone who needs them.
Excellent principal, great faculty, involved parents. These add up to a top-notch elementary school. We are a military family. Didn't take long to fit in. Principal is the driving force. He is sharp, motivated, and committed to excellence. He is also kind, fair, and loves kids. As long as Mr. Dillon is the principal, this school will excel.
