The Principle at this school is terrible at comunnicatin to parents any issues that my occur.The classes are over populated giving the teachers a larger challenge than ever to maintain control over the children.Some of the teachers do not comunicate problems that may occur in the class room until weeks after it has happened, giving the illusion that everything is fine.Some teachers are over whelmed by the over population that the children are not getting the education that they should be getting.When asked why this is happening, the principle indicated that the budget will not allow them to hire help.He would not even ask for help from the parents to help maintain control in the class rooms.Over all the leadership and some of the teachers will not admit that they need more help in these over populated class rooms instead they place the blame on the children for not behaving properly.

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.
