ICERM does not endorse any specific school; this is strictly informational.

The public schools your children will attend is determined by the school district you live in. The school districts closest to ICERM are in the following neighborhoods:

  • The East Side
  • Summit
  • Fox Point

Once you have a feel for where you're going to settle (and therefore which district you'll be in), we recommend you contact the schools directly to find out if there is a wait-list for your student's grade and to learn about the school's policies on accommodating visiting students.

In general, Rhode Island public schools offer after school programs for a fee, which typically combine play and academics with enrichments (music, art, theater). You can find details about each school's activities via their links below.
