Is the worst school in providence. Teachers bully students and let them fail due to no communication with parents. Regardless of everything you do to make sure your child is doing things right it doesn't help due to poor teaching and being disrespected by the teacher. And don't get me started on the principle they sit and do nothing. Worst 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.
