About The Grace School

Grace Today, Great Tomorrow

The Grace School is an inclusive K-8 private school for children of all abilities located on the Meeting Street Campus in Providence, RI. This is a place of academic excellence, where highly trained, dedicated teachers inspire creativity, nurture gifts, and encourage perseverance in every child. Children with special needs and without special needs learn and grow side-by-side making it a unique school environment where everyone succeeds.


Inclusive Model

We were the nation's first fully inclusive K-8 school. In addition to providing education to all students, with and without special needs, in the same learning environment, our inclusive culture of compassion provides the perfect opportunity to instill acceptance and understanding of children of all abilities. Out inclusive model was developed and honed for more than 20 years at Meeting Street's highly acclaimed and nationally accredited Early Learning Center before The Grace School was founded in 2006.

Rigorous Academics

We are committed to all of our students, with special needs or without special needs, meeting or exceeding grade level learning standards while providing also an environment that nurtures tomorrow's open-minded and thoughtful leaders. Students are given the opportunity to lead meetings and undertake various leadership tasks that draw upon their individual strengths and interests.

Family Engagement

Another part of what makes The Grace School a success is the way we involve families and the community in our learning. We ask that families stay actively connected to their child's educational experience as well as their school culture. We hold many family engagement events throughout the year where students, teachers and parents come together as a learning community. We are involved in the world around us and strive to instill a sense of shared responsibility in our students.

The most important thing we can give our children is a great education. At The Grace School, education is not just limited to the academics, it is also about instilling the values to prepare our children for society as an adult.

Small Class Sizes

Each classroom boasts two highly credentialed educators who are passionate and supportive professionals with the ability to maximize each child's potential.

This is possible through a small class size with an average of 15 students per class and small group instruction. A tight-knit learning environment allows teachers to continually assess each student's progress and workload so that the child can reach his or her highest possible potential.

Responsive Classroom

We proudly employ the much-celebrated Responsive Classroom® approach, which is a research and evidence-based approach to education that is associated with higher test scores, exceptional social skills and high-quality instructional practices. It has been recognized by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) as one of the most solid learning programs possible.


State-of-the-Art Campus

There's no better place for a child to blossom than in an award-winning 80,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility situated on the beautiful 9 acre Meeting Street campus. Our facilities are so exceptional, in fact, that we were one of the first campuses in Rhode Island to achieve LEED certification, which is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices.
