North Smithfield High School earns "Commended" status

 North Smithfield High School

North Smithfield High School has earned the distinction of being named as one of Rhode Island’s 22 “Commended” schools of 2016.  This is the highest rank attainable under the Rhode Island Department of Education’s ranking. Of the schools selected, there were only 2 high schools that made the list of top performing schools in RI, and North Smithfield is one of them!

RIDE scores schools on the following criteria, ranking them by a composite index score: student proficiency levels on Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers exams, the closing of learning gaps between the lowest-achieving students and performance standards of the PARCC exams, a student’s measured annual improvement on exams and the Class of 2015 graduation rate.

Congratulations to our students and staff for a job well done!

NSHS Open House September 7th

 Please be advised that North Smithfield High School will host our annual "Open House"  this Thursday, September 7th, from 6:00-8:00 PM.  This event is designed to allow parents to meet our staff and familiarize themselves with their student's classes.  Parents are expected to follow their student's schedule during this time. A bell schedule will allow each classroom visit to last approximately ten minutes. At this time a brief overview of the course along with expectations will be presented by each teacher.  Please keep in mind, this is not parent/teachers conferences. That event will be scheduled after our first marking period. I hope to see you there.

Parent Teacher Conferences

 Parent teacher conferences will be held on Thursday November 3rd for students with their last names beginning with the letters M-Z.   The second scheduled conference will take place on Wednesday November 9th for students with their last name beginning letters A-L.  These conferences will begin at 5:30 PM and end at 8:30 PM.  I hope to see you there.
