The mission of the Warwick Public Schools, working cooperatively with families and the community, is to provide challenging learning environments that enable all students to develop skills and knowledge necessary to become self-directed, life-long learners, highly productive responsible citizens, and contributors to a technological and diverse society.

From the Desk of the Superintendent

Philip Thornton, Ed.D.

Dear members of the Warwick Public Schools community,

 As you may be aware, the School Committee and my leadership team have been working in recent months to position our school system to be more efficient, more effective, with our students as the first priority in all decisions we make.

 To that end, on the link below, I want to share with you our blueprint for improving the school system in the coming years. All of our decisions have been made with the best interests of students, schools, and the taxpayers of Warwick, in mind.

 In the coming months, we will be holding a series of public forums to explain in more detail this blueprint, answer any questions you have, and get input from you on ways to continue to improve our school system.

Thank you,

Phil Thornton
