North Kingstown Senior High School Reviews
The school environment overall was friendly if you got involved in sports and other clubs and activities. It was cliquey, so it was important to be involved or have friends from classes, otherwise people weren't very friendly to outcasts. Academics were very high quality with a lot of AP classes offered. The foreign language program is great, offering many different languages. One huge downside was how strict the administration was on students. Doors were always locked for safety, but students were very rarely allowed outside during the school day, and never unattended except under special circumstances for photography. Students weren't even allowed to walk around the building freely during the day or even after school. It felt too strict, but it had quality academics and high performing sports teams.
North Kingstown is a consistently standout high school among others in the state, and from my time here as a student, it is obvious why. Nearly all of our sports are very competitive, and there is always a large crowd supporting. However, the worst part of North Kingstown High School is the overbearing administration. There is a very small group of troublemakers, yet the administration treats the student body as if every single student is an issue. They have recently imposed restrictions and changed common practices in ways that only harm the students and frankly do not make sense.
Growing up, I attended a Catholic school from grades K-8. I then transitioned to North Kingstown High School for 9th grade. While I was somewhat apprehensive about going from a school of 300 to 1500, I was amazed at how welcome NK made me feel. From their small class size to their countless extracurricular activities, there truly was something for everyone at the school regardless of the interests or hobbies a person was engaged in. Teachers at the school were passionate about their subjects and conveyed them well to students, and were always eager to stay after school or during advisory to help those who were struggling. Overall, I would say North Kingstown prepared me extremely well for college through its Honors and AP classes, and attending the school gave me academic and social skills I know will help me in my future.
