Greystone School is above average in academics and safety in comparison to Centredale School. This is a direct reflection on the leadership, as Greystone's principal is visible and action oriented when it comes to student issues. Areas for improvement include more supervision in the cafeteria and lines when transitioning students, and less cell phone use / socializing by staff.

I love the pre-k program at this school. its an integrated program where they pair children with delays with children who are advanced. My son had a speech delay and now a year later you wouldn't even know, his grammar is great and I am so pleased. The principal here is wonderful and the teachers are pleasant. They definitely do their job above and beyond.

The preschool program is not very challenging but it's a good social experience for my child. The teachers I have dealt with are very nice & professional. The principal is very hands on & in touch with the school & students.

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.
