Welcome to the Metcalf Elementary School website. Metcalf is part of the Exeter-West Greenwich School District which was established in 1965 when Mrs. Katherine Metcalf kindly donated twenty three acres of land on which to build this school. She requested that it be named for the Metcalf family. It was built in 1967 with the dedication ceremony taking place on November 19th of that year. While Metcalf School was originally a middle school, we currently serve students in grades three through six from the towns of Exeter and West Greenwich.
At Metcalf Elementary School we strive to create an academically rigorous environment balanced with support and guidance for social and emotional well-being. We believe in the Growth Mindset philosophy where every child’s abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work. We strive to create a love of learning and resilience that is essential for great accomplishments. Teaching the Growth Mindset creates motivation, productivity, and fosters courage in children to try new things. It enhances relationships and acceptance of others which in turn helps all children succeed in the world around them.
