9 Parent Reviews for North Smithfield High School

There are some good teachers. Some bad. From my experience, there are good people who are horrible teachers, and vice versa. While some teachers are a problem, the lockers are literally falling apart, there's graffiti on the desks, and there's such thing as "mandatory field trips," The biggest problem ...  Read more

This school simply has a low tolerance for students. THey seem to be hard knocks here and very little room for students who fall behind. Even when seeking help from the guidance department they have little help for parents. It is sad when as a parent you see your child failing and they pretty much put ...  Read more

I agree quite a bit with the reviewer below. I think they lack quality administrators, probably due to funding. The taxes we pay are so out of proportion to the educational funding. I have found the elementary school to have some very talented, dedicated teachers. As a parent, you need to navigate through, ...  Read more

I am very disappointed in the school system lately. Administrators are leaving at an alarming rate. We are also one of the few systems that start school after Labor Day. The past superintendent was incompetent and should have been let go a long time ago. There are teachers who should be let go also. ...  Read more

I was a student at North Smithfield High School for 7 years and I had some good experiences and bad. If I had the choice to chose Woonsocket over this school system I would. North Smithfield High needs to be redone. The lockers are begining to break and the classrooms are a mess. The school is too small. ...  Read more

I am very unhappy with the N. Smithfiled school system. Children who are living in a nearby group home called Sakonnet are sent to the N. Smithfield school system. These children are very troubled children and are bad influences on the other children in the school. I would also like to mention that ...  Read more
