Updates and Information

Dear Tiverton Parents and Guardians,

As of the writing of this newsletter we have completed 15 days of school with great success. Attendance is up at all four schools -thank you parents for ensuring your child comes to school each day - attendance matters. We have low class sizes at each grade level /course and teachers are taking advantage of that by delivering  great instruction  using technology to provide our students with a high-quality education. 

Recently, Fort Barton was recognized for having the highest student attendance rate placing 1st across all schools in RI. Ranger is ranked 19th across all schools. Tiverton Middle School is ranked 8th for Middle Schools across RI. Tiverton High School is ranked 11th for High Schools in  RI.
