Scott has high standards, but it depends all on the teacher your kid is going to get. Some teachers are really bad, but there are some who are extraordinary. My kindergartner has one such teacher who is absolutely fantastic. My 4th grader has a very good teacher too and both my kids have blossomed under the effective guidance of these teachers. The school could do with a little more warmth and friendlness though. More attention needs to be paid to Science.If you are the kind of parent who likes to be involved in your child education, this could be just the school for you.

children taken outside for recess when its too cold. notices tend to arrive the day of the event or the week following. very costly after school programs from PTA. no discount for low income parents to allow their children to be included. no way to sign up for assistance from food drives or holiday collections. PTA is run by the same people every year. donations might as well be mandatory for PTA gift baskets. overall its a good school though.

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.
