North Smithfield High School Reviews

North Smithfield High School stands out amongst other schools for its commitment to academics and inclusive environment. It offers AP courses with fully competent and enthusiastic teachers, and an amazing music program. However the school should dedicate more time to helping students prepare for real life situations, as well as offering career based information students know where they want to be. It is dedicated to Unified Sports and has been recognized by the state. It offers a safe environment, this year adding a SRO from the NSPD to be present at all times. The teaching staff enjoys their work and it is clear how well they get along. However, the facilities of the school such as available bathrooms and heating systems are lacking. Overall, it is a great high school that is continuing to advance.

North Smithfield High School is mostly a clean and safe environment to learn in. Overall the teachers are friendly and help every student reach their potential. The teachers are more than willing to provide extra help to a student almost everyday after school, before the first bell, or in advisory. The student body is very small, it consists of almost 500 students. The students are typically very nice and always have smiles on their faces. The sports teams are around average, but the school does provide a lot of materials for the athletes to be successful. After reviewing different aspects of North Smithfield High School, I highly recommend attending this school for a positive learning experience.
My time at North Smithfield High School has been your classic small town high school experience. However, what makes NS stand apart from others is the dedication and excellence of its teachers, who, for the most part, genuinely care about educating and preparing their students for the future. I can confidently say as a Senior in High School that I feel as prepared as I possibly could be for college, and that can only be attributed to the great educators I have had there thus far.
