More About Little Compton School District
Little Compton Public Schools is comprised of the Josephine F. Wilbur and Katherine B. McMahon elementary schools. It is located on the Commons. Kathryn Crowley is the superintendent of schools and James Gibney is the principal. Public education in Little Compton dates back to 1698, when school was conducted in private homes with a schoolmaster appointed to teach reading, writing and arithmetic. With the lack of an official building to house the school, the schoolmaster was required to move his school quarterly around town.
Changes over the last 50 years in science and technology education forced Little Compton to make arrangements with the neighboring communities of Tiverton, Portsmouth and Middletown to send its students for the remainder of their grammar and high school education.
Little Compton School Committee meetings are held on the second
Wednesday of the month at 7pm in the Commons of the Wilbur & McMahon School located at 28 Commons, Little Compton, R.I.
