At North Providence High School I found a very unique community of teachers and mentors that always try to involve their students with extracurriculars, community service and with learning opportunities outside the classroom. Many students at North Providence High School have the chance to learn from the amazing faculty that encourages them to become well rounded individuals.
I transferred to North Providence High School as an English language learner student during my sophomore year and I found the support I needed to assimilate the new environment among my peers and teachers. Having to get used to a new country, a new language and a new school was challenging but at North Providence High School I felt safe and encouraged to keep learning everyday from those around me.

North Providence High School has the best staff around, everyone that teaches there are so kind to their students! I'm glad I've been able to be part of such a great community of students and staff! The only thing is I would like for the bathrooms to be a little more clean (mostly the one in the caff). Overall, a really good school!
Throughout my four years as a student at North Providence High School, I enjoyed all the opportunities that came my way. I always liked how open every faculty member was to helping the students. They enjoy seeing their students do well in school. On top of the faculty being open to helping the students succeed, the majority of the students help their peers also. I love the close community feeling of the school and love how everyone knows and accepts everyone. What I would like to see change in the school would be more inclusiveness of the special needs community within the school. I would love to see the special needs students taking classes with every other student. They deserve an inclusive class, instead of an exclusive environment. This way they have the same opportunities sd all the other students at the school. Other than that, North Providence High School is an amazing school that goes above and beyond for the students, the faculty, and everyone else there
