The principal of this school does not deal with problems well. If anything, she makes them worse.

Posted March 31, 2013

My child transferred from the local Catholic school to Quid and I am very pleased with the decision. Academically, this school seems to be a bit ahead and the teachers and community are wonderful. Her new friends are great kids and she enjoys to go to school everyday.

Excellent teachers that go above and beyond for their students. The COZ ( child opportunity zone) is excellent providing a wide choice of after school programs and events such as have lunch with your child..Hardworking PTO never fails to make school events amazing and memorable. Many nice families attend the school.

I think the Principal, Mrs. Denette, is one of the most approachable people in the school system. She is willing to do whatever it takes for every student to excel. The teachers all work with each other very closely and have wonderful programs that promote learning in non-traditionanl ways. An excellent school over all!

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.
