South Kingstown School District Reviews
They are currently in turmoil with large number of administrators resigning or retiring during the 2018-2019 school year. We are heading into a new school year with new administrators, new principals, and an interim superintendent. It feels like the rats are deserting a sinking ship. All the while, the teachers (who are excellent) seem to be under a cover of fear of what the school committee might come up with next. This has a negative affect on the kids as they can sense the problems.
The administration in south kingston is rude, condescending, and wholly incompetent. With all the issues in dealing with Dr. Stringfellow, and Maria Parillo, I couldn't believe that stringfellow won a superintendent of the year award. So I looked into that. It was issued by her peers, from an organization in which she is the VP. NOT by the families in the district. When confronted with issues that are happening right now, she was unwilling to recognise these issues, she was condescending, and even hung up on us when we wouldn't accept the brush off she was giving us. That's the behavior of the superintendent of the year.
My experience at South Kingstown High School has been positive and negative. The social aspect of SK is awesome, with great clubs, sports, and events. However, some teachers are sub par, and many utilities, such as heating and our bathrooms, are often lacking. I think that the facilities are old and need some updating.
