Posted February 17, 2011

I have to say that i have a feeling that the GOOD ratings on here are coming from the staff at the school making an attempt to make the school sound better than it really is. My daughter has been there for 4yrs now and this year her teacher has been absent or there hasnt been a teacher at all alot more days than should be allowed .One day the substitute even left sick! If i was sick this many days at MY job i would have been fired a long time ago

We have found the staff at the school to be exceptional. Facing all the difficulties that public schools in poor areas face, the education that the kids are getting is just great!

Considering the challenges many public schools currently face, including decreased funding and limited parent participation, we feel that in spite of having an average school rating, the staff is wonderful, and continues to work diligently in making a difference in the classroom and community. So far, we've been very pleased with our child's expirence at Agnes E. Little.

My 16 year old daughter went to this school for the sixth grade. The principal, Ms. Washington, was great. Her teacher, Ms. Larosse, was the best! Thankfully, the teacher is still there today. My seven year old twins have been there since Kindergarten. Kindergarten teacher, Ms. Google, was great - she was able to discipline them and keep them in line. This despite my youngest twin have ADHD (which was not diagnosed until 1st grade) and having a huge class. This year I split my boys up into two separate classrooms. My oldest twin had Ms. Rego and [she] was great and knew how to keep the kids in line; even though she was a young teacher.

My son is finally leaving this school and i cannot wait. He had some decent teachers but his sixth grade teacher was awful. The principle was great this year. She was very easy to talk to. The pawt special ed is awful they are not there to help the children.

I have my son in this school and I could only use one word to describe this school overall, devastating. The school has no structure and the worst part of it is that no one seems to care about it or the kids. If I could I would pull my son out of this unorganized school.

Horrible school! we have 2 kids new this year to pawtucket schools; a very weird school system and highly incompetent principals/administration. Teachers are generally decent.

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.
