Pell Elementary School opened in September of 2013 combining 3 neighborhood schools and encompassing a body of almost 900 students. In just a short time, Pell has fostered a sense of community among the population it serves. Pell provides opportunities for all of its students whether they have special needs or benefit from extra challenges. Pell's staff is superb and is always focused on putting the student's needs first; whether it be in the classroom, art room, music room or gymnasium. Pell offers technological opportunities that older, antiquated schools cannot. Smart boards, computers and tablets are found in every classroom. Students take both a technology class and a STEM class. The grounds offer 2 playgrounds one designed for K & 1st grade and one for 2-4 grades; a basketball court, fields and a community garden. Pell is bright and cheerful and full of well-mannered, polite students. After school programs range from art classes taught by artists affiliated with the Newport Art Museum to tennis with a member of the Newport Recreation Department as well as after school homework support to those who need it. An excellent opportunity for all!

We are very happy with the new school. My daughter loves her teacher and is thriving at Pell.
The school offers a modern facility with state of the art technology, outside learning which include sensory gardens, hydroponics, and harvesting gardens. We offer a variety of after school programming which provides homework support as well as a plethora of enrichment activities.
