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.

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 High School is an amazing high school. For any white student. As a black student I stood out like a sore thumb among the many subtly racist wealthy whites. The teachers are amazing however, and I built many lasting relationships that I hope will continue in college. The administration leaves much to be desired. They are more concerned with procuring money in the form of funds from other school districts for taking their public school kids in as a part of our various CTE programs. Their obsession with CTE kids causes problems with population and class size. They have to give seniors the privilege of leaving school early or coming in late and called it "Offrole" because they don't have enough classes to fill all of their students. As a whole though, they are definitely an above average school. NKHS is definitely among the top 3 public schools in Rhode Island.
