This school is literally the worst. The teachers don't care about the students or their wellbeing. They allow bullying & they don't pay attention the kids' needs. They don't care if your kid fails or not.. & if your kid is failing, they won't do anything about it or try & help the students. The principal & staff are all twofaced. They say one thing to you then do another. Point black period, this school isn't worth the stress. They treat the kids extremely poor.

This school is only the worst school ever! The teachers will allow your child to fail and not help them. They don't care about our children, all they care about is having a place to earn a lousy pay check. The staffs' communication system doesn't even exists. Please don't send your child to this school if you don't have to. If the State Board Of Education really cares, they would launch an investigation, the records speaks for themselves. They only have parent-teacher conferences when parents have to be at work or during the hours they have to be home to make sure the children gets in the house safely. There's too many problems with our children not being adequately cared for after school hours. As a single parent, I feel like schools like this one does not take into consideration that there are parents that want to be involved in their child's education, but the school does not make it possible for us to be there. This school is dirty, open to whatever and exposes our children to harm because of the lack of staff and security within the school, inside and out.

This school is nothing like the school departmI expected. I was informed nye ent that tjis was one of the best schools in Providence, I disagree. This school is currently failing our children statistically and it is not impressive. Something needs to be done by the school department once it is found that a school is failing based on test scores, teacher quality and even parent involvement. Don't you care about our children?

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.
