The most important thing that you should know about this school is that it is a nationally known for its achievement of a blue ribbon award. This school was recognized by Washington DC for being outstanding and for the efforts of former AWESOME principal Mr. Pelletier & the new principal Ms. Feeney. My daughters days are coming to a close as a graduating member of the 6th grade of class 2013. Thank you to all the parents& teachers. we will always have fond memories.

This school has the children envolved in many ways. The teachers give the right amount of work without stressing out the children.

this is the first school my kids attended in usa. and they liked it very much. the teachers here are very cordial, very co-operative, and the atmosphere, very friendly. the kids do not feel out of place. since the very first day, they could blend in with other kids - thanks to the teachers!

Wonderful school. Excellent teachers who take time to understand the needs of each child individually. Innovative methods of teaching, compassionate dealing with children with problems and issues. After the harrowing experience at Scott school, this school has been such a pleasure. The area where we live comes under Scott school, but my second grader goes to Park as he required ESL last year, this being one of the two schools, which supports ESL in Warwick.My son loves it, he has settled down and has been doing so well. My younger one will be ready to go to kindergarten next year. Even if he does not require ESL, I hope I shall be able to send him to Park School and not Scott.I am very happy to send my child to this school and I recommend Park Elementary school highly.

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.
