We wish our Jamestown community a wonderful holiday filled with love and gratitude!

"Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness. Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude is shown in acts."
-Henri Frederic Amiel

Superintendent's Message

    Jamestown is home to a National Blue Ribbon Elementary School, which is the highest distinction you can receive from the United States Department of Education. Also, our elementary school received a 4-Star rating from R.I. Department of Education, while our middle school received a 5-Star rating. Our educators have received local and state recognition in the area of teaching. Our educators represent national board certification, State Teacher of the Year, Milken Educators, Presidential awards for excellence in Math and Science, Civics education and more. Our students are represented across the state in athletics, robotics, all-state music, & regional music competitions.  
     In the classroom students and teachers collectively master a standards-based curriculum integrating world language, STEAM, our Makerspace and very own Greenhouse. Together they explore the curriculum in and out of the classroom across the nautical landscape of Jamestown. 
     Our community is extremely supportive of our schools. We have many partnerships within our Town that enhance the programs we are able to offer to our students. Our PTO, the Jamestown Education Foundation and parent groups are very involved and take on leading roles in our schools. Our Military Liaison is a wonderful connection to us and our new Military families. We have a large population of military families from the Newport Naval War College that join our community each year. Through the collaboration of all of these groups, we are able to sustain and continue to grow our Jamestown Schools. When you have some time please stop by for visit.
In Partnership,
Kenneth A. Duva, Ed.D
