Worst school for bullying period! Principal 1star. staff should have someone in the morning and dismissal to make sure students feel safe leaving the building.

I love this school! The new principal is hands-on with parents and students alike, the teachers are pleasant and appear very interested in the students. The kindergarten teachers are excellent, had my son reading by the middle of the year! A+

The teachers and principal of this school do a great job with what they have to deal with. The problems that the children come to school with make it more difficult for them to learn and I believe this could be accomplished more easily in smaller groups, with more specialized attention in the areas that are needed. I care very much about what my child is learning and am concerned about these low ratings in math and reading.

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.
