District Overview

In the Jamestown Schools, students, teachers and support staff demonstrate ownership of learning experiences and their school environment. They share common beliefs in the importance of rigorous academics and social-emotional learning. The Jamestown School Department serves grades preschool through eighth grade. Students in preschool through fourth grade attend the Melrose School. Fifth through eighth grade students attend the Lawn Avenue School. All Jamestown residents have a choice to attend North Kingstown or Narragansett High School for grades ninth through twelfth. School bus transportation is provided to both schools. A brief comparison is listed below, with additional links for more information.
