My Son is in 6th grade and he loves it. The teachers are great, and the administrative staff is tops in our book. It is a great school for anyone's kids to go too.

This school has some very good teachers however,the leadership is a poor excuse for one. The faculty are limited due to poor leadership.

As a nanny of three girls, one of the three girls attending Chariho, while the two older girls attend local Country Day Schools: From my expierence, Chariho is either a hit or a tremendous miss for your child. There are really very,very few programs offered to help highly capable students, however whole ...  Read more

I have three each in High School, Middle School and Elementary School. The Chariho system currently uses TERC/Investigations math curriculum. This curriculum forgoes math skills and teaches math concepts. Children in Chariho are not prepared for higher level math where math skills ...  Read more
