My husband & I attended warwick neck elementary when we were kids & now as parents of 3 little girls, we wanted to give our daughters the opportunity to enjoy their education at a wonderful, thriving elementary school. We moved our family back in to the warwick neck area so that our girls could attend this great school.warwick neck elementary has kept up with the changing times & incorporates state of the art technology in the teaching process at every possible opportunity while still maintaining their caring, nurturing & hand's on teaching methods as well. My children have made amazing progress in their education & have made friends with many well rounded "Good" children which in my opinion, being with other well behaved kids affects their own behavior & enables them to make good moral choices growing up with very few "Bad Examples". I'm very happy with the quality of education that continues at warwick neck & my husband & I are very happy we made the right choice to move back in to the area that we grew up in & knew would be best to raise our daughters in as well.

Our daughter entered this school from a private kindergarten which was wonderful. From the moment school started there were nothing but problems with the principal and teacher. Although we contended she was placed inappropriately, I was told "this isn't private school and this is how we do it." The Principal and teacher were unwilling to listen to us and were unbending in their assertion that we would just have to live with the placement. Very dissapointing and we'll be moving out of this district..

this school is an ok school if it wasnt for some of the staff. My child has had food taken away from other children. the lunch monitors are not adaquite to handle all the children. My sons teacher is gone at least once a week, when we spoke to her she said she is on an a assignemnt. i have spoke to other parents in the class and they feel the same way she is not a teacher material. Other parents and myself have sent emails to the superintendent hopefully he rectifies the situation

Warwick Neck School is located in the middle of a secluded wooded area away from traffic. The teachers, staff and PTO are all awesome. Both of my children attended this school, so I have been in this school 11 years, and I do not have one bad thing to say. Both children love this school, and all the fun, learning activities that are made possible by caring staff, PTO and parents. This school is reason parents buy houses in this neighborhool.

The educational experience at Warwick Neck Elementary is much more than learning in the classroom. Kids thrive by participating in a variety of activities that make this unique place.... a true gem of a community school.

My children love Warwick Neck School for many reasons. Their teacher is fantastic, encouraging & caring. In addition to the terrific care & education they receive from their primary teacher, they love attending the school's music class, physical education class and going to the library. They are absolutely thriving at Warwick Neck!

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.
