Bernon Heights school is always planning activities to get the students and their parents together. Also the teachers are always willing towork with the parents to help the students achieve their best.

Bernon is an excellent school both my kids have gone there since kindergarden through 5th grade. Mrs. Tinknell has done a wonderful job focusing on education. I only wish I was able to attend that elementry school.

As a parent of a child in the 5th grade, I was rather surprised to see the rating at 5! Since Principal Tinknell has been in command I can honestly state a positive change in this school. My has been attending since K. They have no tolerence for bad behavior and saftey in very important to them. Most of all the kids and teachers are the best. I could go on and on but you get the idea!!

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.
