Posted July 20, 2013

These reviews break my heart. I attended the school in the 1970s. I still praise my elementary teachers there as the ones who instilled a love of learning in me and nurtured my creativity and curiosity. They were more influential in my life than my middle and high school teachers (in a more affluent suburban neighborhood). The school had poor physical resources and the principal during my time practiced questionable leadership (I even knew that as a child!) -- BUT the teachers set me on a path of academic success and a career in higher education. THANK YOU to all my teachers who loved on us, played the guitar, led us in creative projects, and set up fun learning centers. Note: Since I do not know what the school is presently like, I have opted to give 3 stars for an average rating. TEACHERS: Hang in there. You REALLY can make a difference in the lives of students. PARENTS: Get involved. It takes a village.

I used to go to this school, and all I got to say is, the teachers are friendly and the principal that it had when I was there was one of the worst I have seen. I know this isn't the teachers fault, but the curriculum wasn't very good. I remember some of the things I learned were very repetitive throughout the years. I liked the teachers, but beyond that, not much good in 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.
