I honestly love this school. My child is in kindergarten and my daughter will be in this school next year. The school is great with parent concerns and they keep communication with me about.my child and his progress. I also love all the activities that are offered that interact with parents and the community. All the staff is very friendly and the school is very clean. I honestly wish there were more extra curricular activities such as chorus and orchestra and school affiliated sports but I am sure that is dependent on budget. So far no real complaints and as far as the bus system I love my child's bus driver and monitor and feel my child is safe with them and they also deserves 5 stars (bus 12), they go above and beyond for my child every single day.

I love this school! The teachers are wonderful! I have two children who go to Greenbush and have never had a problem. Teachers are helpful in maintaining communication and push the students in a positive way. My only compliant is the office staff, secretaries etc. they are very unmotivated to help you and are rude in many ways. I have yet to have a good experience with any of them. Good thing is, i don't have to deal with that often. By far the best elem school my kids have attended and we were prior military so we've moved often. I feel my children are getting an amazing education. 5 stars!!!

Greenbush Elementary School is an amazing school, from the the, to the cleanliness of the school. You can tell that they take pride in the education system and what better way to feel but at ease when your child is being left in the hands of adults who take pride in their work. Mrs. Greco was my son's Kindergarten teacher and has been moved to the 1st Grade to teach this coming school year. I truly hope she will be his 1st grade teacher this year because they built an amazing bond. He really loves her as a teacher, and from what I understood, she admired him as a student. The biggest problem today is finding a school where both the parents and child are content, and Greenbush Elementary School leaves no room for disappointment from either myself or my son Richy. I highly recommend Greenbush Elementary School to any parent and their child(ren).

So far we have had a good experience with the school. Sometimes we get info on current events at the school a little too late. Student procedures aren't always real clear

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.
