Under No Child Left Behind, a school makes Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) if it achieves the minimum levels of improvement determined by the state of Rhode Island in terms of student performance and other accountability measures. See Rhode Island School for the Deaf's test results to learn more about school performance.
I moved to Rhode Island from California and was attend
the old Rhode Island School for the Deaf (Hope Street) in
Providence, R.I. in the 1970's. It was very good education at that time, because of good and strict teachers. I was enjoy to learn more education, play sports, love arts & crafts class, out camping on the weekends, out on the field trip to New York City
and etc... with deaf students. I liked and missed it.
Today, I think that R.I.S.D. needs more improve education, add or change some better classes like arts & crafts, leather crafts, f.e.a.s.t. and etc... because deaf students need to learn and enjoy after their hard studies with their strict teachers. I am sure that they still go out for weekend camp, field trips and play good sports. (Go, Red Rooster, Go!)
Anyway, I worked for California School for the Deaf in Fremont, Calif., after attended two state deaf schools in Arkansas and
