North Providence High School Reviews
North Providence High Overall is like any other public high school in the state. Food that tastes super artificial, gross bathrooms and ugly structure. Academics are average. Some teachers are really great whereas some are straight up rude and even say some offensive comments. The administration is absolutely useless. If you’re being bullied you’re brushed aside or worse get in trouble when you’re the victim. If you have any type of mental illness (anxiety especially) or whatnot that requires some form of accommodations, you might as well forget it. They seem to believe they are mental health professionals and will only compromise accommodations after parents harassing them with calls and notes from professionals. Doesn’t help that this school piles you with work, without even having to be in AP classes. Honestly regret coming to this school and wouldn’t suggest it to any kids with anxiety or tendencies to get bullied by other students.
I especially liked my teachers. They take time to know every student personally and academically. They want to see all students succeed, and will take the time to help in class and after or before school tutoring. Furthermore, they treat the students in positve ways- with respect and friendliness. If I had to see a change at North providence High School, I would want to see the sport fields upgraded immensely. They are in desperate need of repair and can not sustain the amount of use they receive all year.
Overall, wonderful experience, but there is a huge divide between motivated and unmotivated students; I guess that's common from all school districts. The school should facilitate better preparation for college, however; the majority of the process I had to go through alone, even with the resources provided. But there's a delightful sense of community here.
