This is a great school with great teachers, wonderful activities and highly competitive sports teams. I have had two children graduate and go on to highly competitive colleges. It consistently has National Merit Scholars, All State Band and Chorus students. The school's athletic department has been voted the best in the state more times than any other school for success and sportsmanship.

I have had three children who have and are attending NKHS. I think it is a great school with a lot of opportunities for students.

I think that the school as a hole is very incapable when it comes to children that fall ouside there normal guidelines.

This school is a great school. They offer a wide variety of courses, like landscaping, computer courses, cooking classes, child development and many others. The sports programs are also wonderful with dedicated coaches and facilities, including a weight room. There are also a variety of art and music programs such as 3 different choirs, jazz band, symphonic band, and music theory among others. The teachers get involved and the quality of instruction and teaching is great. This is truly a great school.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Rhode Island used the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. GreatSchools ratings currently reflect 2013 test data; the ratings will be updated when the latest NECAP science data is made public and available in the summer of 2014. The NECAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Rhode Island. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
