My school is William Winsor School in Smithfield, R.I.. My grandson goes there and loves the school and his teachers. The teachers seem to be very caring and really care about the kids, from the principle on down to the teacher's helpers. Always doing fun activities, movie night and such. The kids feel they are in a community where they are being well cared for, and they are safe.

I have had three children in this school. Bullying and name calling are very common here. Nothing is ever done despite many complaints. The staff is in too much denial to treat this issue seriously. We moved from the city for a better life for the kids and it is far worse than I could ever have imagined. This school does have few great caring teachers, but it is not enough. Wish we were all back in the city with the better behaved children.

My children have attended this school since 2002 - we couldn't be happier with the principal, teachers and paraprofessionals.

Last week my daughter made a salad in her first grade class, using the vegetables grown inside at William Winsor school .She was so pleased with the lesson! Kudos to the teachers who continue to encourage good health and intertwine that into their daily teachings.! Thank you for all of the care that you give our children!

William Winsor School is an outstanding school! The teachers, paraprofessionals, and principal work so hard to personalize learning for every child. The principal even writes a personal note on every child's report card every quarter. Many families move to Smithfield just so their children can attend Winsor. The expectations for students are very high! Everywhere you look, there are smiles on faces and the adults genuinely love the children who attend this school. Any child would be lucky to have the priviledge of attending Winsor School.

I have had 2 children attend this school. The devotion of the teachers is inspiring. Both children were always happy to go to school. It really is like a second 'home'. Not to mention that the education has been outstanding. They learn the required curriculums but also go above and beyond. Children are taught to be life-long learners, respectful, and true to themselves.

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.
