I love this school because it is very clean, the teachers are excellent and I believe the school deserves this cause nothing like this ever happens in Tiverton RI.

Ranger School is definitely an above-average elementary school. The main office assistant is always friendly and informed (despite a very busy job) and that attitude is everywhere. The teachers I've met are caring and hard-working, and the principal is good-natured and comes to all events. The school has a new building. Pros are that the building is shiny, sparkling new - everything spotless and in good order, nice cafeteria, gym, etc. Cons are the design of the building - students isolated with their own grades. Gym and classrooms small. It's so new and the entry ceilings are so high it looks a little cold and clinical - like an office building - could use more color and artwork to look friendly. It will look better outside when the landscaping grows in, really need more playground equipment. The great PTO is working on it. Great arts and gym teachers too.

As a former student of Ranger and now the mother of 2 ranger students, I have to say it one of the best schools out there. It is a small school who considers all the students family. The teachers are wonderful, they really go way beyond to help and do everything they can for you. Ranger staff your doing a great job. Thank you for everything. I look forward to working with this staff for years to come.

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.
