“A good process produces good results.”
RISE Prep teachers believe that the most important teaching moments lie in the steps and work leading up to a scholar’s answer. Therefore, there is great pride in, and thought given to, the process of learning which will drive meaningful and sustaining results for scholars.
According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) scores that were released this morning, it is clear that the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly and negatively impacted student learning outcomes nationally, in historic and unprecedented ways.
At RISE Prep, we know that rebuilding our learning community through innovative and engaging instruction, is the first step in rebuilding exceptional academic results.👩🏾🔬🎓
New year, new faces, new curriculums, same mission. Thrilled to welcome back the RISE Prep school community for the 2022-23 school year!
College Begins in Kindergarten 🎓

RISE Prep Mayoral Academy opened in September 2015 to 46 kindergarten scholars. Our school was a result of two years of building, planning, and studying the highest performing schools in the country through the Building Excellent Schools Fellowship and remains driven by the unwavering belief that all children deserve access to high quality, public, and tuition-free education.
RISE Prep partnered with Rhode Island Mayoral Academies to bring an intentionally-diverse and rigorous college-preparatory K-8 public charter school to Woonsocket that enrolls scholars from Woonsocket, North Smithfield and Burrillville to provide a socio-economically and racially diverse learning community.
RISE Prep believes that grit and relentless hard work on behalf of children are key to ensuring that, as we grow a new grade each year, our scholars are the proof point that demographics do not determine destiny and that college begins in kindergarten.
WHAT MAKES RISE PREP UNIQUE?
