North Kingstown High School is a great school! I am going into my senior year and have had an amazing experience. For the most part, the classes are challenging and there are a variety to choose from. In addition to typical math, science, english, and languages, there are business classes, engineering courses, music, arts, etc. There are also many opportunities to earn college credits through Rhode Island College which are transferable to other colleges nationwide. Most of the faculty is well trained in their teaching area and cater their lesson plans to fit their students, whether it is Success Academy, College Prep, Honors, or Advanced Placement level.

This is a great school! All of the teachers that I have had during my time here have been amazing and very helpful in teaching the information to me. When I struggled, they all put in maximum effort to make sure I understood the material and often spent time after school with me.
I have really enjoyed NKHS. The school provides great academics, athletics, and art productions. In the future, I think NKHS could grow as a school by providing more after school help and study spaces for struggling students or students who cannot go home. Either a more accessible tutoring program or support teachers could certainly help achieve this. Additionally, the school's diversity is poor and I would love to see it become a community which celebrates our differences.
