Rhode Island Schools

Our first Rhode Island school, Achievement First Providence Mayoral Academy, opened in 2013. Ever since, it has been proving what’s possible for students in the Ocean State. We are proud to serve students from Providence, North Providence, Warwick and Cranston. We’re even prouder to help them excel.

Rhode Island Results

  • We’re raising the bar.

    Last year, our student outperformed their in-state peers at such a wide margin that we committed to benchmark our Rhode Island results against those of Massachusetts, which is widely considered to have one of best school systems in the country. The results are in—our kids in the Ocean State are outperforming the state average of our Bay State neighbors by 5% points in ELA and math.

  • We meet all students where they are, while also holding high expectations.

    English Language Learners at AF Rhode Island score proficient and above at five times the rate of their peers across the state.

Additional Information, Notices, and Policies

  • Special Education Local Advisory Committee Information

    • The Local Advisory Committee (LAC) is a group of parents, teachers, school administrators and related service providers (social workers, psychologists, speech/language pathologists, etc.) working together on behalf of children with special needs to improve services that support our students.
    • The LAC plays a vital role in the success of special education programs and services by providing resources to parents as well as special education professionals. These resources help parents and special educators become partners in delivering the best and most appropriate services to students in their care.
      • We do this by:
        • Explaining the individual education plan process and available services so that parents can participate fully in their child’s education.
          Informing administrators, teachers and special education service providers about federal and state laws to guarantee compliance with those laws; and
          Bringing together parents and professionals with similar experiences for mutual support and assistance.
      • You can download the Procedural Safeguards in English or Spanish.
