I go to Pilgrim. Some of the teachers here are the embodiment of why the union is a bad thing. Others, however, are the kindest, most generous teachers you'll ever meet. Some of the faculty here are so committed to making sure their students have the best chance in college admissions and beyond, while others honestly couldn't care less. At Pilgrim, it's less of an overall quality of teachers and more of an individual thing. Most departments are helpful, but some individual teachers really go above and beyond.

Warwick school system was 30 years behind the times. Consolidation/closing of schools and moving to middle schools should have been done a longtime ago. I'm very appreciative that these changes have finally happened but the impact can be seen across the school system in the buildings, teachers, teachers union, school committee, town counsel, etc. It effects everyone.

The Warwick school system is now on the right track and I see a bright future for current and new students. - and the town. The financial struggles won't end any time soon.
My experience overall has been amazing! I love the teachers and the enthusiasm they have to help children learn and keep them engaged in learning. I have made real lifelong , I hope friendships with most of my teachers. I always felt like a person not just a number in school everyday. I could go on and on about my experience it was unforgettable in many ways!
