This is an amazing school. The teachers and staff are very involved and truley care about the children. They often stay very late imolementing special activites, talking with families, and preparing their rooms for the next day. There are tons of activities for families, and a fantastic student of the month program. Everyone is very helpful. My son has special needs and has been in this school since he was three. He is now in K. We love the school, the teachers and the support staff.

All my three children go to Pothier and they have excellent teachers and grades. It's all about getting evolved with the teacher and school.

I came from North Cumberland and moved to Woonsocket and my child attended both elementary schools. In comparison, Pothier teachers were nicer, more knowledgeable and the principle was excellent. My child achieved excellent scores, monthly merit awards and the courses were more advanced. Way to go Pothier! My son has excelled because of you.

The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
