Our students have made incredible academic gains through hard work, discipline, and a new found motivation. The two year student progress is not only noticeable, but impressive. Veazie is proud to be the home of the hardest working teachers, principal/v.p., and assistants in the city. -Grade 6 Teacher

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.
