    Most of our students (84%) qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. They are closing the gap with their wealthiest Rhode Island peers. Our fourth-graders’ math results exceeded those of students in East Greenwich.

  • Proving What’s Possible

    Achievement First Providence was named a 2017 Commended School, putting the school in the top 7% of all Rhode Island schools. It is the only commended school serving majority Latino, Black and low-income students and requiring no exams for entrance.

  • Outscoring the State

    Our Black and Latino students significantly outscored their state peers in ELA and math. By fourth grade, they outperformed the statewide average for white students by 18% points.

  • What is the Special Education 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.
