    I would like to take this opportunity to share my input on Old County Elementary. I have experience with other public schools in RI. However by far I have to rate Old County Elementary as one of the best. I attribute this to the Principal Mrs. Sullivan and the teachers. There seems to be a synergy amongst them all. Mrs. Sullivan is hands on and involved with her students & their families. She is very knowledgable helpful responsive and caring. The teachers exude the same attitude. Its refreshing to know that with all the responsibilities they have provide a personal touch. I feel secure and confident my child is in great hands. Old County keep leading & setting the high standards. Denise L.

    I have 2 children at Old County Road School. I have been very pleased with there efforts to enhance my children's learning experience. Not everything is perfect room for improvement but overall I feel very confident in the teachers abilities and Principal Sullivan! My kids are doing well and happy.....that is what counts!

    I was purposely deceived and any concerns I raised were dismissed. The school has caused much grief and pain to my children. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

    My son and daughter both attended Old County School. We found the teachers were very involved and quality academic programs.
