A small quiet town in Southeastern part of Rhode Island nearby the towns of Narragansett, Coventry, North Kingstown, and Warwick, filled with what you could, say wealthy people. not everyone's wealthy of course, there are townies and there are people, who are just middle-class and live there like me. Always stereotyped as the rich town full of rich house wives who wear Burberry 10,000 dollar shoes, the rich town full of rich, spoiled, unfriendly, elitist brats and people who live there are always called a "walking ATM machine" But remember, not everyone's rich in East Greenwich. Many successful people today started from EG. East Greenwich is the only republican town in Rhode Island.

East Greenwich is know for its beautiful bay views, art galleries, and restaurants and is rich in history.

East Greenwich is a pretty safe community and that's one of the reasons why some people choose to live there, even though the house prices are quite expensive, rather than cities like Cranston.

Most East Greenwich students are quite smart and have A+ grades. East Greenwich schools have the highest test scores in the state. Most kids have cell phones and iPods, by the time they reach middle school. And most of the kids wear brand names, such as Abercrombie and Fitch, American eagle, etc. And some of the richer kids wear Lacoste, Juicy Couture, etc. Most people are very preppy.

From my experience, most people in East Greenwich generally tolerate those who they aren't friends with. But of course, no one says hello to nobody they know. Gossip lives well, very much thriving and alive, and so does talking behind people's backs. Of course, they are some stuck-ups, who act like total bitches. But most EG kids aren't open to anyone different. If you are different and not "in", you are automatic an enemy.

The "Townies" generally live in downtown East Greenwich or south of post road, and most of the time has a lower income than everyone else. Most Townies are wannabe gangsters and are quite tough and loathe the rich people of the town.

Popular or preppy girls are usually very skinny with big hips, who usually love to shop. Most popular or preppy guys are skinny and bony or they are very lean, who usually are very much into sports or have some personality trait such as being funny, that makes them popular.

Most of the wealthier people of East Greenwich live in the costly housing developments located on Middle Road or in other nearby roads such as, Tillinghast. The most expensive housing development is "The Woods" and is where usually the richest, most popular kids live. The minimum price for a house in one of these housing developments is 800,000 dollars and the maximum is over 3 million dollars.

Those who don't live in the costly housing developments, but still mostly upper-class, usually live on the roads that the expensive housing developments are located on.

Despite, being a wealthy town, the East Greenwich Schools are not-so wealthy. The condition of most of the schools is terrible. Someone wrote earlier that East Greenwich district cut the High School's Music program and instead spends their money on a third gym. That's not true. The East Greenwich School District has no money to build a third gym and they haven't cut the high school's music program. Kids only go to 1-2 field trips a year. The textbooks are from 1980 and in some classes, kids don't even have textbooks. And all East Greenwich Schools have only one gym. Eldredge, Cole and EGHS are all very old. The schools rarely ever have enough money to buy certain equipment, only after book fairs or certain events that raise money for the school, does the school have enough money to buy equipment. For example, it took the schools about four years to save up and buys new computers and laptops for schools and finally get rid of the 1989 Apple or Gateway computers. This is because East Greenwich Schools receives less money then other school districts such as Cranston and Warwick from the government every year, since East Greenwich is thought to be such a "well off" town. So other school districts have alot more money than the East Greenwich School district. And nobody donates a ton of money to the schools.

At EGHS, a high population of students has their own car or uses their parent's car instead of taking the bus. The townies are usually the druggies and the smokers. The cool kids usually hold parties every Friday/weekend. And a lot of people drink alcohol. The EGHS football team is one of the best football teams in the state. EGHS's mascot is an avenger, a knight on a horse with a sword.

At Cole Middle School, there are only two grades, 7th and 8th and each grade is divided up into three groups. The classes are easy compared to the high school. Cole's mascot is a lancer, very similar to EGHS’s mascot, the avenger. The girl's basketball team is always usually terrible; they usually lose all of the season's games. They haven't won the championships or made to the playoffs, since 1996. The boy's basketball team however is quite different, the coach is very tough and the boy's team is quite good.

At, Eldredge and Hanaford, the two elementary schools consists of three grades, fourth, fifth, and sixth. Cliques are usually decided around fourth grade and once cliques are decided, they pretty much stay the same up to the high school. Students usually start dating in 5th grade. Both the school's mascots are the eagle.

Meadowbrook and French town are the two other elementary schools, consisting of four grades, KG, first, second and third grade. Nothing interesting much happens in Frenchtown. All, you do is learn the letters, colors, some math and alphabet and play most of the time, before heading to Eldredge or Hanaford, where the real fun starts.

The racial makeup of the town is 95.64% White, 0.69% African American, 0.06% Native American, 2.50% Asian, 0.01% Pacific Islander, 0.29% from other races, and 0.82% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race is 0.90% of the population.

A Ironic Example Of Getting Harassed Since You are From East Greenwich:

Moses Brown Kid: Hey! How much did those shorts cost? A 100 bucks? What a spoiled brat. (Meaning the red EG shorts, the East Greenwich Schools sell for $20.)

East Greenwich Kid: Look who's talking. How much did those shorts cost?

One guy hoots and points at her: Look, it's a walking ATM machine!

1: Small, wealthy, suburban town in central Rhode Island. Home to many alcoholic trophy housewives and sheltered, spoiled brats. A town where BMWs outnumber brain cells, and the number of black residents can be counted on one hand.

2: The lone republican refuge in an otherwise democratic state

3: The "other" white town. See: Barrington

Small town in Rhode Island filled with skinny rich kid drug dealers that don't carry guns, and girls that like to shop & tan.
We want our townies to go back to Cranston, and we beat Barrington's test scores every time.
Those fucking E.G. kids are such elitist bastards.

N; A small town located in the center of Rhode Island that contributes cultural, intellectual and monetary assets for the entirety of the smallest state in the country. EG is home to successful CEO's, the govenor of RI, noted artisans, professional NFL and NBA atheletes, students who can continually boast the highest standardized testing scores and a diverse collection of noted professionals who also create the data which makes EG the wealthiest town of RI. Downtown EG is lined with acclaimed galleries and restaurants as well as beautiful harbor views. Kids who have a problem with the town are generally community members who can't meet the $200,000 income needed to "fit in" with the lower/average quartile and suffer severe psychological distortions/defense mechanisms in the form of rage.
Since I am a "townie" and my family doesn't match the average East Greenwich profile I am going to develop a skewed definition of EG and use such rage as a defense mechanism to avoid making an effort to utilize the wealth of resources the town provides.

Actually the best town in Rhode Island, the richest, and smartest. Full of wealthy,hard-working people such as many doctors, lawyers, celebrities, and professional athletes(also home of the Governor) who live in some of the nicest houses in RI. Being the richest town in Rhode Island is not a bad thing, just badly stereotyped by people that are jealous. In EG, the "townies" act all poor and ghetto, but they really aren't. They just happen to be not as rich as most EG people. East Greenwich High School has the top test scores in RI year after year, and is repeatedly named the best HS in RI. Even though EGHS is small, the EG Avengers compete well in RI in every sport, against schools of all sizes. Barrington and NK are EG wanna-be's. EG is really not elitist or snobby, everyone just says it is so they complain/be jealous, like people from North Kingstown and Coventry.

There are 2 types of Rhode Islanders: Those who live in East Greenwich, and those who wish they lived in East Greenwich
NK kid: Where are you from?
EG kid: East Greenwich
NK: Rich snobby bastard.
EG: Someone's jealous...don't you have some weed to be smoking?

Small town in RI where you can't go anywhere without knowing someone. Parents are afraid to let their kids go to Providence because there are too many "stabbings and gun shootings" there. In EGHS, no one talks to someone their not friends with, no one says hello to an only an aquantaince. The cheapest house to buy is 400,000 and its not even new. Teens here are so wealthy that they pretend theyre not by getting high and drunk every night-and their parents give them the money to do so. Barrington thinks theyre EG, but EG has the A+ test scores.
Ashlee- Hey mom I'm going to a party at Kyle's tonight in east greenwich.

Kyles mom- okay which pair's up next for beer pong?

Small town in Rhode Island typically stereotyped as being rich, spoiled, bratty, unfriendly, and elitist, but is only made that way by the people who whine about how EG sucks all the time. The school's mascot is the "Avenger", a guy in armor on a horse with a sword.
Jane Doe: Oh my GAWD, I hate East Greenwich, everyone is so snotty and rude and stupid...and oh my gawd did you see that ugly jacket whatshername was wearing?!?! I think I'll spread nasty rumors about her and be surprised when people call me a catty gossip.

Geographically the 16 square miles of East Greenwich is located in the center of the state. It is the eighth oldest town in the state and was home to many early American Patriots. The town was established in the 1600's. The land upon which East Greenwich sits was originally owned by the Pequot Indians and was acquired by King Charles II in 1644. The General Assembly incorporated the Town in 1677.

The Town is bounded on the East by Narragansett Bay and four hills roll up from the coast to the West Greenwich town line. The downtown area of East Greenwich was initially settled to support the surrounding farming area. As the town grew, so did the commercial center. The protected cove brought trade ships from the far corners of the world and gave safe harbor to local fishermen.

As East Greenwich grew as a trade center so did the need for goods and services, both for the townsfolk and those passing through. Industry flourished with the manufacture of textiles, brushes, machinery and and shipbuilding. This has left behind a legacy of fine historic buildings for people of the 20th century to enjoy. The town of East Greenwich is proud of its' heritage and its' National Historic District.
