My son goes to this school and is in pre-K. He never comes home without a smile. He is way ahead of most kids his age and he stays half days in the daycare unit. The daycare unit is managed and monitored by caring and loving people who really love their job. All I can say is thank you all for your commitment to our kids.

WRCS takes Christian principles and integrates into their educational process. We have noticed our children have developed wonderful social skills, common courtesy, and are taught in an environment where teachers deeply care about the children. The faculty at WRCS interacts with children on a personal level, focusing on both capitalizing their strengths and improving their weaknesses. Our son in pre-K has learned things children in 1st grade NNPS schools are learning, and our daughter in 5th grade is now studying 8th grade equivalent matter NNPS teaches.

My child started at WCA in 4th grade. He struggled at public school with the fundamentals due to the large emphasis on SOL material in the public school. WCA still covers the SOL topics, but spend a lot more time teaching important basic concepts that are often missed at public school. The teachers really love the their work at this school, and it shows in their patience and dedication.

My son is in Prek4 at Warwick River. We love the principal, the staff, and the teachers. We love the small class sizes. My son is on the autism spectrum. His teacher is so patient, so flexible, very understanding. My son, my husband, and I are all very happy with our decision to enroll my son at Warwick River.

I have been so pleased with Warwick. My son entered K5 without the ability to do much scholastically because of learning disabilities, and within the school year has excelled. The teachers care so much. They encourage all parent involvement. And there is just nothing better than to have my son come home speaking good Christian values. I highly recommend.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
