This is a really good school. My son's teacher is dedicated. My son is in Kindergarten and he reads really well for his age, and he also writes sentences. Teachers motivate students.

Hello my name is A'zareia Randall. I was a student at Mary E Fogarty. And the only reason why im writting this because Mary E Fogarty is a great school for students to go to. They do not allow bullying they have street workers that come in and talk to us about all that. Make videos. Have fun and Johnson and Wales to. We have fun. And at the end of the school year we have partys they have a stepping team and great teachers and staff. The nurse is the best nurse in Rhode Island. Her name is Mrs. Thurber i loved to go to her office for nothing. And i just think they should win

My 9 yr old attends this school, he is doing well and I believe its mostly because of our invlovement as parents. Parents really need to understand the vital role they should play in their children's education. We have a lot of responsiblities and we can start by helping out our teachers. They have a tough job already. Parent of four

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.
