2015 PSAT Registration

The PSAT’s will be given on Wednesday, October 14, 2015 at NSHS at 7:30 A.M. This is a change from past years where the PSAT was administered on the weekend.  CollegeBoard dropped the Saturday test date for the 2015 PSAT session, but they are committed to returning it for 2016.  

Students may register online for the PSAT's here.  Registration will not be complete until payment is made in the Guidance office no later than Friday, October 2, 2015.  The cost is $20 and can be paid by cash or check.  Checks should be made payable to North Smithfield High School.

On the day of the test, students should bring a pen, two #2 pencils, and a calculator.  Upon payment, students will receive a PSAT booklet.  More information about the PSAT’s can be found at: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10

Summer School 2016

The North Smithfield School Distirct offers many opportunities for students to remediate failed courses for credit over the summer. Registration materials for summer schools are attached to this post and also available at the high school along with information on virtual learning opportunities.  Summer School is not mandatory, but it may be beneficial in order to remain on track for promotion/graduation.  We have posted information on local summer schools at the bottom of this message.

 

NSHS Report Cards, Failure Letters, and Summer School Approval Forms will be mailed home on Tuesday, June 21, 2016 for students who should or need to attend summer school for credit recovery.  All other report cards will be mailed home later that week.  Students who choose the Virtual Summer School Option must have pre-approval from the Guidance Department before registering for any summer school course.  

 

Please contact the Guidance department at 766-2503 for more information or contact the appropriate school counselor by email at.

Expanded Learning Opportunity for Juniors in 2015-2016

Next year we are piloting a new program called Expanded Learning Opportunities.  The goal of this program is to offer students the opportunity to explore a self-directed, interest-driven topic of inquiry and receive course credit for their work.  Students will take this as an elective course and we will work as a school to establish criteria for this program.

 

Students will be partnered with mentors in the community who will serve as guides for their work.

 

We are looking for students who are self-directed, responsible and who have an interest in learning in a non-traditional way.

Students with questions or concerns about ELO's should see their school counselor for assistance.
