I was in the last graduating sixth grade class of Webster and i have to say that it's everything i could every ask for. I have established a very good friendship with all of the teachers of diferents grades of this school, even if i never had them, but they were like my second family from home. With the foundation of my education whilst entering middles chool i was able to take what I learned in the wonderful learning enviornment and applied them to my middle school experiences. When graduating from the middle school Webster had place me in, I was honored with becoming validictorian and was awarded with the most acedemic awards in the entire graduating class and many other clases of previous years. I have become very successfull and currently attend Classical high schol where im starting freshman year already ahead of average students. This school is still my second family today and i visit since I live near by. I give my greatest regards to the wonderful principal Alicia Jones for she may be a true friend of the alredy elite group that I obtain.

I have not been impressed with this school. The teachers are not helpful and the principal is way to scattered to care. I think there is not a whole lot of learing going on here. I have a child with an IEP and it took me to remind THEM when it needed to be reviewed...disappointment! This is to bad cause it WAS a great school...

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.
