Gordon School is an elementary (Nursery - eighth grade) coed school in East Providence, Rhode Island committed to connecting children’s academic and social learning with the world beyond the classroom. We expect our youngest to explore what they wonder and require our students to apply their hands to what stirs in their minds. And that is why, in their last months on our campus, we have our eighth graders walk the Edmund Pettis Bridge in Selma, Alabama and design and implement a plan to effectuate change and empower others in the greater Providence community before they graduate. 

In addition, Gordon has a long standing commitment to the LGBTQQI community, represented by:

  • Two social events per year specifically for LGBTQQI families
  • An annual admission reception for LGBTQQI families hosted by current LGBTQQI families
  • Recognition of the National Day of Silence in the Middle School, since 2006,
  • A Gender and Sexuality Alliance in Middle School, meeting weekly since fall 2015
  • Two faculty members who serve as liaisons to Gordon's LGBTQQI community
  • Representation by Middle School students at the annual Boston conference of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, since 2015.

The Providence Country Day School

The Providence Country Day School

When the Providence Country Day School was founded in 1923, its founder declared, “No one is a sideliner here.” The school’s motto, “Play the Game,” was born from the sentiment. PCD, located on 31.5 acres in East Providence, Rhode Island, is a co-ed college preparatory school, serving grades 6 to 12. PCD students learn in a culture that says success comes from being an engaged participant, not a spectator.  Getting the most out of a PCD education comes from being open-minded enough to try something new. Whether raising your hand in class, offering a helping hand to someone in need, or joining hands with teammates, students will find that PCD is a place where doing is an essential part of learning. PCD teachers know where students are on distinct educational paths and meet them there every day; students become partners in their own learning. Today, the PCD motto might more aptly be “Change the Game,” a challenge to not only be an engaged participant, but to change how you see the world, how you see yourself, and how others see you. PCD students are constantly growing past perceived limits and changing the game.


The Wheeler School
www.wheelerschool.org

Founded in 1889, The Wheeler School is an independent day school for girls and boys from Nursery through Grade Twelve in Providence, Rhode Island. Central to the School's philosophy is the assumption that all of us, students and teachers alike, can and should contribute to and draw from the extraordinary energy and vitality which is characteristic of this community. Most importantly, we believe that all those who participate in the Wheeler experience will recognize, celebrate and respect: Individuality, Commonality, Opportunity and Awareness.

We are proud of who we are, but an honest school admits that it isn’t for everyone. We are a vibrant, joyous place founded by an artist, with an academic program renowned for its creativity and innovation, but also for its rigor.  We are a place where three-year-olds and seniors share the same city block and high-five one another on their way across the courtyard. We are place that seeks to inspire and reward individual initiative with a flexible and student-centered program, and we are place where all kids, however they evolve and choose to define themselves, feel equally embraced by the culture.
