The aero tolerance policy only applies to physical bullying - not to teasing, even on a grand scale. Several students have been suspended for striking back after enduring teasing on a regular basis. If the administration would do something about this verbal bullying, these students would never be in a position to need to fight back. Things may work great in the classrooms, under the watchful eyes of the teachers, but take away the direct supervision, and problems abound.

Halliwell Memorial School is an excellent environment for children to learn in. Teachers make sure that all of the students undertand the 'Learning Curve' of each class before moving on. The school is set up like a campus, with two classrooms per building. The school ranges from grades 4-6 aand there are extra classes beside the s that each child must attend. (Basics: Reading, Writing, [or English,] Math, Science, and Social Studies.) The extra classes include: Art, Physical Education, Library class, Health Class, Music class and grades 4 and 5 have a Chorus class. All teachers think of the students before themselves, but there is something called a 'No Tolerance' policy, which excludes any kind of bullying, harassing or swearing. Halliwell Memorial School is a place I'm proud to say I attend.

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.
