North Kingstown Sr. High School Reviews

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.

NKHS is a good school. Slightly crowded and lacking diversity, but overall good. The teachers are friendly, helpful, and great guides. The guidance and administration are super helpful and welcoming. The bathrooms could use some renovation (missing mirrors, lacking paper towels, new faucets), but the classrooms and hallways are very nice. The Chromebooks are great. Lots of clubs and activities and great resources (ARC). School itself is very outgoing with giving students opportunities and keeping them up to date.
North Kingstown High School has rigorous classes and is a great community to grow and prosper as a person. I have learned so much about myself throughout my four years in this school. There are various types of after school activities, such as sports, clubs, and organizations that you can get involved in. Also, there are many different electives and classes to choose from. School spirit and going to football games on Friday nights are what I will always remember. Overall, my high school experience was something I will never forget.
