Best Public Schools in Central Falls, RI


The city of Central Falls, Rhode Island is home to 10 schools, including 6 elementary schools, 3 middle schools, and 1 high school, serving a diverse and economically disadvantaged student population. While the majority of the schools are part of the underperforming Central Falls School District, two public charter schools, Blackstone Valley Prep Junior High and The Learning Community, stand out as the highest-performing schools in the area.

Blackstone Valley Prep Junior High, a public charter middle school, is the top-performing school in the data set, ranking 29th out of 64 Rhode Island middle schools and earning 3 out of 5 stars from SchoolDigger. The school boasts strong test scores, with proficiency rates ranging from 29.6% to 45.9% in English Language Arts and Mathematics, and a relatively low percentage of free/reduced lunch recipients at 65.74%. In contrast, Ella Risk School, a traditional public school, is the lowest-performing, with proficiency rates ranging from 5.4% to 10.1% in English Language Arts and 20% in Mathematics.

The data also suggests that factors such as student-teacher ratios may play a role in supporting better educational outcomes. Schools with the lowest student-teacher ratios, like G. Harold Hunt School (10.5) and Ella Risk School (10.8), tend to have higher test scores and better overall performance compared to schools with higher ratios. This highlights the importance of maintaining manageable class sizes to support student learning and achievement in the Central Falls school system.
