I am a former student of Lippitt Elementary School and am now in the 7th grade and I went to Lippitt grades 1-6. I have to say that Lippitt is a very good school. The teachers are very loving and helpful to each and every one of their students. I always felt comfortable around my classmates and my teachers. I would highly recommended going to this school. The teachers always try their best to help their students with anything that they can. From experience, I can say that Lippitt is a school worth trying. I have gotten a close relationship with each of my teachers. I love this school so much that I even go and visit every chance that I get. So if you are ready to put your child into elementary school, I recommend lippitt :)

my child loved k, and adored her teacher miss amaral. I too must say miss amaral is by far one of the most compassionate teachers I have met so far, she is always there for the parents and children and never makes you feel like you are bothersome, shame there is not more like her at the school. Lippitt does have a long way to go.

A very bad school! No one will listen or help with any concerns. They will chose who they will listen to which is wrong! They offer no after school help. The principal is a horrible example for students.

The worst school I have ever seen! I did get my son out of there and he is now doing great! No one is concerned with the children or what they are doing on their free time. The teachers are only concerned with their paychecks and not paying for their own health care.

A less than great school. I took my child out of this school and put them in another. My child is doing so much better now. The teachers at Lippitt are more concerned with their teacher contracts than with teaching their students. Parent/teacher conferences are almost extinct. They are not concerned with informing parents with particular concerns with how their children are learning. If you care for your children, take them out of this school now and watch them improve!

I'm glad my daughter goes to Lippitt. I've heard nothing but good things about this school. I was worried about my child starting school just like any parent does. But my child absolutly loves going to school everyday. The teachers she has had seem to actually care if she does well and encourages her to learn new things. They have also made it a point to meet me and tell me how she was doing and have answered any questions I have had in any area. They never made me feel like I was bothering them. Mrs. Amaral (K) and Mr. Mapes (1st) Thank you for all you have done.

Lippitt Elementary has a long way to go to be considered a good school. With work to rule, the teachers for the most part are not involved in helping the children learn the way they should; don't want to talk to parents about things, and have even refused to fill out medical evaluations on the child because they would have to do it on 'their time'. Principal is a horrible example - rewards the biggest problem students by making them straps, no communication with parents and not interested in even trying to communicate with them. Some teachers there are good and seem earnestly trying to help the children, but for the most part, the level and quality of education is below my expectations having been in Providence prior (can you believe that - Providence was better?) No extracurricular activities offered to children.

Lippitt has been an excellent, nurturing environment for my two children. My extremely bright and motivated child has been nurtured and has responded to high expectations. Meanwhile my less motivated and more challenging child has made gains thanks to the excellent teachers he has had. These teachers go above and beyond in helping him to learn.

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.
