I wouldn't recommend the school to anyone. The school is full of spanish speaking children and teachers. My child attends this school but soon will be taking him out. I went to couple PTO meetings and most of the meetings are in spanish. I don't speak spanish. I feel that I am not being served fairly. The office people are rude and helpless. I went to the office to grab lunch menus, which was plenty but they refuse to give it to me. My child has been bullied many times. Spoke to the principles and principle took care of it but the bullied still continues. There is not enough adult supervision during the morning when kids line up to go to classes. I see kids running around, hitting each other, throwing things at each other. My child got hit with rocks. This school has very poor performance.

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.
