I would like to take this opportunity to share my input on Old County Elementary. I have experience with other public schools in RI. However, by far I have to rate Old County Elementary as one of the best. I attribute this to the Principal Mrs. Sullivan and the teachers. There seems to be a synergy amongst them all. Mrs. Sullivan is hands on and involved with her students & their families. She is very knowledgable, helpful, responsive and caring. The teachers exude the same attitude. Its refreshing to know that with all the responsibilities they have, provide a personal touch. I feel secure and confident my child is in great hands. Old County, keep leading & setting the high standards. Denise L.

I have 2 children at Old County Road School. I have been very pleased with there efforts to enhance my children's learning experience. Not everything is perfect, room for improvement, but overall I feel very confident in the teachers abilities and Principal Sullivan! My kids are doing well and happy.....that is what counts!

I was purposely deceived and any concerns I raised were dismissed. The school has caused much grief and pain to my children. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

My son and daughter both attended Old County School. We found the teachers were very involved and quality academic programs.

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.
