Narragansett High School Reviews

As far as high schools go, Narragansett is one of the best. The teachers are awesome. The classes are informative and interesting. I was part of an environmental club called Envirothon where we won the state competition and went to Missouri for the national competition! I was part of the book club and the swim team. The teachers are involved in these clubs and sports and really want students to succeed, both academically and personally. The students are not very diverse, mostly white christian/no religion. However, most are accepting and tolerant of those different than them. There are preppy popular athletes, but there are also a wide range of different people (smarties, stoners, art kids, etc). I wouldn't want to repeat high school, but Narragansett is a great high school with caring teachers and great academics.

I was able to get a lot of help with my classes, and with my college application process! The teachers are extremely supportive and help each student accel in each subject. The teachers also put the students first, our safety, happiness, and education is the faculty's top priority.
My experience at Narragansett High School has presented me with many opportunities over the past four years. For example, I was given the chance to participate in the Everfi online program which showed me how to handle finances and manage my future life while considering all costs such as college, family, and travel. In addition to this, I was able to compete against many other students in the CSPAN annual documentary contest where I was awarded with an honorable mention alongside my partner. Finally, during my Junior year at NHS, I was able to become involved with the Chemical Engineering department at the University of Rhode Island where I, along with the rest of my AP Biology classmates, worked alongside Dr. Samantha Meenach.
