Welcome to Exeter-West Greenwich!
We are a regional school district, formed in 1965, serving two fast-growing towns in southwest Rhode Island. For its first twenty-five years, the district provided education through grade 8 and tuitioned high schoolers to neighboring communities. The opening of the Exeter-West Greenwich Regional Junior-Senior High School in 1990 embodied the communities' commitment to quality public education. Since that time, our schools have become community centers, district finances have stabilized and strengthened, and a focus on increasing expectations guides our work. This is expressed in our mission statement - Challenge to Learn, and most concretely realized in a steady increase in the percentage of students seeking higher education: from 54% in the new high school's first graduating class to 80% in recent classes.
The EWG web site is a work in progress, as is the district and all its members. We aspire to great things and take pride in the success of our students, the excellence of our staff, and our role in the community. We desire this web site to be a window into our school system, providing information about the school system with illustrations that bring it to life.
On our web site you are encouraged to visit:
- The District Vision Statement, describing the educational institution we aspire to become.
- Measured Progress, indicators reflecting how far we have still to go.
- Individual school sites where their roles in the district's efforts are detailed.
- And, the many illustrations of life at EWG that show the depth of learning of which we are so proud.
Any requests for School Committee meeting minutes earlier than 2008. Can be made through the superintendent's office.
