Achievement First Rhode Island Schools

Achievement First operates two school in Rhode Island.

Our first Rhode Island school, Achievement First Providence Mayoral Academy Elementary, opened in August 2013 and is currently enrolling students for grades K-4. Our second school, Achievement First Iluminar Mayoral Academy opened in August 2015 and serves students in grades K and 1, growing until it is K-4.

Achievement First schools are college-preparatory public charter schools that prepare students for success in college and beyond. Our two Rhode Island schools are part of a network of highly successful K-12 Achievement First schools located across Connecticut, New York and Rhode Island. At Achievement First, students are provided with a rigorous academic and character development program that includes a longer school day and year, uniforms, and meaningful parent involvement.

Students Served

All students are admitted through a blind lottery that includes preferences for low-income families. We serve all students, regardless of special needs, language or citizenship. There are no admission requirements or interviews, and there are no admission or tuition fees.

Location

Achievement First’s Rhode Island schools are in Providence, but also serve the communities of Cranston, Warwick and North Providence. Any and all students from those communities are eligible for our lottery.

Special Education Local Advisory Committee

What is the Local Advisory Committee?

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.

Parents and Partners

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.
