Scituate Middle School is the best. My daughter goes there and is the state spelling champion and her teachers really helped her.

Academically sound school. Read the recent SALT report about this school. It is a high performing middle school that is kid friendly, and filled with teachers who love to teach. I'm proud to say that my child attends this school!

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.
