Students get, and love, what we offer

New students are struck by School One’s lack of competition, stress or exclusive behaviors. They’re disarmed by the genuine affection they see among students, teachers and staff.

While our no-frills facility may best be described as “functional,” students are quick to tell others, it’s not the building, but the people inside it, who make them love and feel at home at School One in Providence, RI.

School One in Providence, Rhode Island conducts interviews year-round and has rolling admissions. To request an interview, use our Contact Form.

“School One is perfect for kids who seem to be square pegs in the round holes of other schools, whose individuality and personal strengths need a more flexible environment. But that’s probably true for every child. Our differences are our strengths, and School One celebrates its diversity.”
