The principal is great...very open to ideas and suggestions. Teachers are very nice and care for their students. Forest Park is a wonderful community. The only thing I can say that I dont like is that some of the stay at home moms from this school can really make a working mom feel unwelcomed. But the good in this school definately outweighs the bad.

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.
