Bailey's educational mission is to empower and motivate students to achieve proficiency, or their personal best, in literacy and mathematics through delivery of explicit instruction and ongoing assessment. Our goal, then, is to instruct in ways that challenge and improve student thinking as a way to increase a child's capacity to make connections between their prior knowledge, experiences, and new information. Bailey also upholds a strong commitment to creating a learning environment that is safe and orderly-a community that supports and nurtures the whole child.

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.
