This was one of the best options for local families in the Providence area in need of a small class size and well rounded educational experience. Recently the tuition has been moving up each year (according to principal due to state funding cuts) at a rapid rate. Discussions around this issue for families enrolled and unable to meet new tuition hikes is not supportive. Over the last three years it has almost doubled and the expectation is it will continue to go up. The school is a business and the leadership believes it can continue to survive with increased cost and not change in programming. The education is good and should be what a quality public school should resemble. The school has missed the demographic is serves and will continue to loose many families if it continues to raise the tuition. Little to no financial aide is provided.

Henry Barnard School - RI College - Providence, RI My daughter attended Henry Barnard school several years ago from grades K-2. I had actually intended to have her attend through 5th grade, but I had to take her out because she wasn't learning anything. This school was a total waste of time - with no structured learning - they let everyone "figure it out for themselves." The "innovative educational practices" referenced in the comments below translate into "total chaos." I am certain that there are some students who can learn in an unstructured environment, but most cannot. The place was total chaos - no-one took attendance; there was no directed teaching; the students wandered around and did whatever they wanted. No formal rules or procedures were ever disseminated to the parents, and there was very little discipline or follow through. My daughter was seriously injured three times at Henry Barnard; and in all instances it was by other students with out-of-control behavior. None of the students (or their parents) were ever reprimanded or held accountable. In second grade, my daughter was absent for a week and her teacher didn't even know she wasn't there - a waste of money.

Great school for grades K-2. Teachers meet and exceed even the highest expectations.
