I started off at Paul Cuffee in the fifth grade. I was welcomed with open arms. I automatically felt like I fit in. Although it can be very tough to step into a new school knowing that you didn't start from the beginning like everyone else, but this school was amazing. The students and staff diversity is huge! The amount of support you can receive as a student and also staff is incredible. I am very much appreciated from the community of Paul Cuffee, because without them I really don't know where I would be without the community.

Paul Cuffee Charter School is a high school in Providence, Rhode Island. The teachers are very helpful; they would go the extra mile for students. When they see students struggling, they would stay after school for them (3:30pm-5:00pm) just to make sure you are where they are suppose to be. The school acknowledge students with pizza party if they are on Head Of School which means they are responsible, supportive, respectful, and scholarly. If students have a 3.0 or high GPA then they would get an award. The school is a small school with less than 300 kids but every teacher knows every student. The culture at the school is amazing, they have a diverse community and everyone accepts everyone.
Paul cuffee is an amazing school. It is a small community filled with one on one help from the staff. Only thing I would change is the food but it is a great school spirit and over all, it has a beautiful culture and building.
