On Friday, January 5, the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) released its 2022-2023 school accountability and improvement results, which includes Rhode Island’s Star Rating. Barrington Public Schools is proud to share that our schools account for 22% of all 5 Star ratings earned across the state of Rhode Island! Five of our six schools earned the highest rating of 5 Stars, which was known as commended under the previous accountability system. One of our schools received a rating of 4 Stars, which reflects achievement in the top 20% of Rhode Island schools and indicates opportunities for continuing growth. Only fifty schools, including all six schools in our district, received a rating of either 4 Stars or 5 Stars. You can view the accountability results in full detail on RIDE’s School Report Card website: https://reportcard.ride.ri.gov/
