This school is awful. They have 2 high sets of stairs that they don't even shovel for the kids and many have fallen and gotten hurt. I know I caught one child falling down them while I was walking back up them. School property should be managed "by the school". Kids parents send them to school very sick and spread their sickness to all others. And the school does nothing and wants them to come in like that. Not to mention head lice and just yesterday found out that my grandsons class has scabies 2 students and at least 1 teacher and the school still wants them to go in and catch it without taking precaution. Kids are at risk of getting hit and so many almost have since the parking is so crazy there. It's horrible someone should really investigate this school. PLEASE!!

They don't support enough so disappointed with the help this school provides my child! My child been attending this school for two years he's in second grade doing preschool home work hasn't made any improvement at all ! They say they have testing going on for him but still I hear nothing back about the plan or outcome!!

A quality school dedicated not only to academics, but to the children themselves as individuals and as part of a community. Asa Messer School is a multi-cultural school that is planting the seeds of tolerance and good citizenship in today's inner city children. The principal and assistant principal are exceptional.

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.
