    Nathan Bishop Middle School in Providence Rhode Island has displayed a great success in their first year as a re-opened Middle School in Providence Rhode Island. The teachers along with the leadership of their principal has shown they care and want to see the students succeed not only at their school but to be successful in the years to come. The teachers are extremely hands on and always offer extra help before and after school.

    This school is amazing. I am proud to be a student here and I am proud of the effort that we have taken to create an amazing school. Who would have ever thought that this school would turn out to be the most technologically advanced school in all of Rhode Island. Everyone here at this school is kind and generous and I have made many new friends. I came from the Gordon School. This is a private school in East Providence. I was the only one who left my school to come to Nathan Bishop although many children from Gordon live on the 'East Side'. In the beginning I was nervous even scared. Although I enjoyed Gordon I love Nathan Bishop.
