Great First Day with the Class of 2021

Day one is down with the class of 2021 and they are an amazing class. Parents should be so proud of your children. They were respectful, kind and I hope learned a great deal about their new school. I am including some of the pictures from their day. I hope everyone enjoys seeing them as much as I enjoyed experiencing it with them.

Thank you to everyone that helped make the day a good one for the class. Special thanks to our VASSA students and senior leaders for helping with the students. They loved it!!

Looking forward to a great 2017-2018 school year

Summer is over and school is starting and I just can't wait for this school year. The class of 2021 is starting tomorrow with the rest of the students starting on Wednesday. We have some of the best teachers in the state (#5 out of 53 high schools) and they are ready to whatever it takes to help each and every student be successful at EWG High. I am so optimistic and so happy to be working with such a dedicated group of adults. And I mean every single person that our students come in contact with including the Maintenance people, custodians, grounds keeper and the clerical personnel that do so many things that go unseen that make every day for the children at EWG a good one.
We have many great things that will be going on this year and I will bring them to you here as often as I can so you are in the know.
Please feel free to contact me anytime via email at susan_chandler@ewg.k12.ri.us or call 397-6893 ext 203. I love to hear from you and need to hear from you. I do not know it all and make mistakes like any other human and look for any feedback I can get to improve or to improve the experience for your children.

Below is a copy of the High School Mission Statement, Core Values and Beliefs about Student Learning. I hope you will begin to hear more about them from your children as we will be trying to keep them at the core of what we do at the high school. Again, more to come....


The mission of the Exeter-West Greenwich Senior High School is to graduate young adults with the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to achieve their goals and become responsible members of their communities.

Respect Responsibility Kindness      Integrity        Perseverance


Students thrive and achieve…
...in an environment that is safe, tolerant, and respectful.
...when held accountable to rigorous standards and supported to reach them.
...when they advocate for their own learning and achievement.
...when they are exposed to activities that require critical thinking.

...when they direct their own learning, and are challenged and encouraged to grow.

Here's to a great school year!!
