I love Windmill Elementary because it has made a huge difference in my daughter's education. They could definitly use the money to be able to provide supplies for their students and have field trips, school activities, etc. It's a great school!

I have been teaching at Windmill for 13 years and have seen incredible growth. The students are nurtured and feel safe here. It is wonderful feeling to see them visit once they have graduated and have them express how much they miss it at Windmill.I wish all my students much success.

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.
