    My older son completed K here last year and this year he is attending 1st and his little brother is attending K. We have been nothing but pleased with the Leadership and Staff. Professional caring and on top of things. Homework is a daily occurence except on Fridays. My wife and I are comforted in knowing that our Sons are being challenged and cared for well - and my boys come home happy every day.

    The staff and teachers really care about the kids! They're awesome!

    My granddaughter goes here. She did well in Kindergarten but I don't think they push the kids soon enough to learn to read.

    Your experience at AT Levy will vary greatly depending on who your child's teacher is. I have heard teachers yelling at students and I have heard classes singing educational songs as they make their way to lunch. Unfortunately there are many teachers who have been teaching too long and no longer have the desire to do a good job waiting to collect their pensions. The secretaries and others at the school will quickly learn who you are if you are at all active with the school and you will always be warmly greeted. If you get the right teachers your child will excel. The lack of a gifted program is unfortunate and the services for special education I have found to be OK other parents rave about them. They are also very strict about noise control in the cafeteria telling the kids not to talk which I wasn t a big fan of. The teachers union is a problem here just like everywhere else.

    This school ia great but they could do better with spedcial education services in the summmer so the students can continue with their IEP during the summer vacation. The staff is very accomdating during the regular school year if you want you child's teacher to commnicate with you they do. My son's teacher sends me an email every week and I love this. Parental suppor is outstanding the parents are didicated to the students and the school. This year the teachers just do as there contract says nothing extra this is a big problem this year. I wish the school committee could get their acts together.................

    Though we just recently moved from Burrillville my 6yr old did attend K and part of 1 at AT Levy and I would also have to disagree. My son always had homework and can read just fine. Resources were available to him and he always had a smile on his face when he came home. The teachers were kind and warm and always welcomed my input.

    i too disagree. we just moved here obviously a major choice in which towns to look at were schools. i find the school to be great. my dgt is in k and she gets homework every night. granted only 10 minutes but it does reinforce what she did in school and forms an important bond between family and school. she also has some special needs which you wouldn't know by looking at her and she had allergies. i cannot express my gratitude to the staff for the way they have handled all of this. i am very happy with the school and the staff and the curriculum. my dgt is thrilled to go to school each day.

    I disagree with with the parent who said they are 'behind the times'. It is an excellent school and my child has received all the resource help he has needed. His classroom teacher was wonderful. The school and staff are A+ in my book!

    I find this school to be 'behind the times' in curriculum. My first grade child never has any homework and I don't know how report cards are done but when I listen to him read at home I wonder how he is getting by in school. What exactly is this teacher basing her grades on?
