Even though it was rebuilt and is new, the staff and parents remain the same. Not a positive place to be. Most of the parents are snotty, as well as the teachers. The teachers there are also mean to particular students, and single them out. I would never let my child step foot in that school again.

I think Harris is a great school. Since my son started Harris he has never been happier to go to school or more eager to learn every day he comes home with a guess what I learned today story he has a excellent teacher who makes learning fun and the school is beautiful.

I couldn't be happier with this school. My daughter goes here and she has been challenged and to her potential and then some. I love the fact that all the teachers connect and take care of all of the children as a collective! The principal knows most of the parents names and every student's name! I'd say if you could choose an elementary school then choose this one! the faculty and their activities are wonderful!

This school is not that great. Although they do offer various programs for the students, they do not provide adequate services for students who are struggling. They also have abusive teachers, and do nothing about it. Sending your children to this school puts them at risk for academic failure and to their personal safety. This is why I have chosen to move so my children can attend school with much higher standards.

I think that Harris Elementary is a well rounded school with great staff, and direction under Mr. Hazard. This school and its staff, interacts with the local community in a positive and productive manner.

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.
