Lisa Bressett is not only a wonderful principal but also a wonderful person. Her knowledge on education and her views help us to achieve our goals with our children. I really would hate to see her leave. Our school has achieved many goals in education because of her. If you don't beleve me, do the research and find out for yourself.

I was a student here for 6 years and i am now in 6th grade at the woonsocket middle school and i have to tell you that this is the greatest school that i have ever been to..... our principal is a great person, she is a good listener and she is in a good mood most of the time. the middle school is nothing compared to this school.. thank you for giving me a good education for 6 years!

Knowing that a kid had brought a gun into school the safety concerns me a little bit.I do like how Globe Park School has just started community service with fifth graders. Many kids now look forward to Fridays but not just for the fun and games. With this program kids are learning to be kind and help out others. They are also learning reasponsability. The student senate is also a way for kids to do that. Unfortanatly I do not look forward to extracurricular activities.

I have two children in Globe Park School, one having been here since kindergarten and is now completing his fifth grade year. He has made exceptional progress while a student here, the teachers are wonderful, excellent communication, parent involvement is strongly encouraged, principal is very approachable and willing to listen. I have had only good experiences here at Globe Park!

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.
