Year two has been completed. I must say you need to submerge yourself in an environment before you comment on it! That having been said, this year presented itself in a new light with new difficulties. There were multiple instances of bullying within the same grade levels. In most, parents felt the situations were poorly handled and that victims received little to no back up. There were not as many activities open to younger students this year as in the past. The principal would accel at a secondary ed. position where topics are handled in a cut and dry approach and there is little nurturing and compromise needed. Management posesses poor problem solving skills. There is little repoir between the principal and the students. Fortunately, I continue to find the staff to be outstanding. The "special's teachers",are amazing, and are bonded to students equally as well as their primary teachers.

Hoxsie has been an amazing school for our son. The staff has been available to us anytime, and despite the teacher not yet having a contract, the teachers have been dedicated to their students and families. Mr. McKenna retired last year (end of school year '04) to the heavyhearted of those who knew him. A new principal has been hired and seems very excited and dedicated to continuing Hoxsie's good name. She has a great deal of experience with special ed/ special needs. If you are lucky enough to live in Hoxsie's area, consider yourself privileged, and remember to volunteer any time you have to school events, as the teachers seem no closer to a contract and are unable to be a part of after school programs and activities.

Mr. McKenna is an awesome principal. A parent can talk to him about anything. He is a very open and honest guy and the kids love him. How many principals do you know would play 'Mr. McKenna (Simon) Says' when the buses are running late?

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.
