I have 5 children and for of my children have attended peacedale elementary. The teachers are wonderful. They go above and beyond for the students. They offer financial assistants for all students who need assistants for art and soul. which is a wonderful art program the school offers the children. One of my children is special needs. He has adha. The principal is wonderful, he would take time out of his busy schedule to spend time with my son with games, checkers or just to talk. Every year the school assists families with help for the holiday with gifts and christmas dinner. This school has a great office staff and great teachers. Its almost like a second family.

Peace Dale is a fantastic elementary school. The principal and teaching staff are great. The emphasis is always on what is best for the students. I have two children currently in the school and they love it and are doing extremely well academically!

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.
