I just graduated from Cranston West and overall I had a great experience in Cranston Public Schools. Teachers are awesome and I had great relationships with most of them that made me actually want to come to school! There is a great sense of community here as well for whatever you choose to be involved in. Great place to go to school, wish my time here wasnt cut short by COVID :(

Cranston Public Schools provided me with a great experience of education. Cranston Public schools are great with working with kids and getting to be at their best. Cranston Schools walked with since the start of kindergarten. Every schools has a good amount of activities for every Student including Stem, Sports and Other clubs for you to enjoy. One thing I noticed from other schools is diversity. Cranston High School East is a very diverse school of people from all around the world. Diversity is something that every school should have, which Cranston East excelled at doing. There are clubs and activities that Cranston public schools adds that will interest every student. One thing that Cranston public schools needs to fix is the amount of broken bathrooms, computers and other little things to make the schools a better experience for the Student and teachers.
I love how many opportunities there are here, and most of the teachers I've had have been great! However, the schools are not always the cleanest.
