    I think this school is awesome. I can only rate it average because I'm applying the rate to all aspects of the school. Students are not meeting the statewide test expectations but they work hard and learn. I feel welcome and I feel that my daughters have an awesome teacher that is open to my ideas and is willing to help me create a wonderful educational journey for them. My kids will not be turned off by the awesome staff here. After visiting several other buildings including high performing ones I still chose the RI Academy for my children.
