I goto bridgham and I hate it. There aren't many feild tip's, or recess's. The kid's 1 whole period to run around and get energized for learning. There should be 3 field trip's every month. They should have 2 special guests come there twice a month

Overall this school is doing a pretty good job. The teachers could get better because sometimes kids get in more trouble than nessary.. And to the principals listen to the students more.

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.
