This school has since shut down 2010. My kid was one of the 6th graders when it shut down. It is now his last year in high school

As I walk through the halls, I am impressed with the pleasant faces and the politeness from the students. This gives me hope for the futre. The feeling I get is one of an open loving Christian atmosphere.

It is a great school, where the children grow to achieve much greatness due to the expectional teachers and staff.

Holy Ghost School provides a very caring and nurturing environment,conducive to learning. In reference to the Feb 8th review, the tuition, fundraising, and other fees are what keeps the school running, the faculty paid and gives the children the quality education they receive. When a parent chooses a Catholic school, they choose the expenses that go along with it. It's stated in the financial contract! Thousands of dollars in financial aid is also awarded to many of the students who attend the school. Know your facts before you comment!

I like the school but I think that they are too flexible with student's it doesn't seem like a private school is more like a mini public school.They are more into tuition and money . If they would care about the students has much as they do for the money it will be the number one school in RI.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
