Posted January 13, 2010

Three of my children have attended Wakefield Hills, with two of them still there (kindergarten and third grade). I actually attended the former Providence Street School that Wakefield Hills was built to replace. An excellent school with caring teachers & a wonderful environment to learn and grow in. I can't recommend this school enough!

Very friendly and caring teachers and office staff. It is my daughter's first year here and she loves it. I am very pleased at the PTO's involvement also.

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.
