• Message from the Principal


    Building and maintaining a vibrant, educational environment that ensures each student succeeds takes persistent teamwork. Little Compton has created a widely-respected and high-achieving school district that serves as a role model for many. As the principal at Wilbur McMahon School, I work closely with faculty, staff, students, parents and the community to enhance and enrich the educational opportunities for all of our learners. 

    We are dedicated to preparing students for educational and life experiences in an atmosphere where there is respect for the dignity of every person and an enthusiasm for learning. Our school is dedicated to the principle that educational programs be challenging and supportive, distinguished by consistent high standards and attentive to the needs and potential of each student. 

    To keep you informed, I provide Weekly Community Updates via Parent Square. You can also contact me at any time at swhipp@lcsd.k12.ri.us or by calling 401-592-0363 ext. 1001. 

    Thank you for your continued support of our school, our students and our educators. Together, we will give all of our students the foundation they need to become lifelong learners.
