Our mission as leaders of public education in Rhode Island is to make sure that all Rhode Island students are “ready for success in college, careers, and life,” and there is no doubt that students who participate in high-quality civic education and community engagement will be well prepared for life in our democratic society.

In Rhode Island, we don’t ask our high-school students to choose between a pathway to postsecondary education or a career pathway; rather, our goal is to provide all high-school students with the opportunity to become ready for postsecondary education and for a challenging career. 
'Twas the last night of summer, the sky it was clear,
The children were ready to start the school year.
The book bags were hung by the front door with care, 
With notebooks and paper and stories to share. 
The children were nestled all snug in their beds, 
While music and poetry danced in their heads; 
They’d soon see their teachers and friends from last year, 
And meet great new teachers – there’s nothing to fear.
