this school is very bad. if you want your teenage girl to get pregnant, This is the place!!! They even have a Child Care for students in the school. This school has the highest STD cases in RI School Department, the girls are pregnant at 15, they dont care if you go to college or not, they look at kids as future McDonalds employees. Get out of Woonsocket or better yet, dont move here!!!!

I went to woonsocket middle school for three years and woonsocket highschool for one. I hated my whole woonsocket school experience, I had some close friends, but I got picked on by A LOT of the students there. Plus, the teachers have a lot of kids in their classrooms and they can't pay attention to all of them individually.

There are a few great teachers in this school, but a few is not enough to make a great school. The amount of homework and the length of assignments given to the students are ridiculous and not fair for a high school student. "College Prep" students are receiving harder and lengthier work than the "Honor" and "AP" students. The recent change back to a Period system instead of a block schedule has also set this school even further behind. Students are now crammed with so much info in one day that there is no way they will be able to retain it properly. The school has went backwards in terms of advancement for the education of the youth. I won't even mention the school's participation in the NECAP.

I am a junior i WHS. Most teachers are extremely deticated to their students and more than helpful. The problem with this school is the stupid tardy and attendence policys! you only get four days to be absent in a quarter and if your late you have to miss a whole class .. Even if it is just one minute that your late. And if your absent 5 times in a quarter you get 10 points takin off your average. I hate that about this schooooooooooooool

I am a senior at Woonsocket High School. I've been here for four years, and I absolutely love it! We have one of the highest ranked music departments in the area, our sports teams are competitive and fun, and students here get a quality education. The teachers here truly care about their students, and they go above and beyond their required work to help the students. Sure there are occasional fights and such, but what school doesn't have them? If you're not ignorant, and you mind your own business you're completely fine.

The school is definatly a great school. They have a large diverse student population. The only downside that I've seen so far is the Lunch staff. If your child doesn't know their I.D. number the lunch staff calls them stupid. I wouldn't recommend letting your child buy lunch there.

I'm a transfer student from the Cumberland system. I'm taking Automotive at the Career Center. Woonsocket is a great school. The teachers are great and actually seem to like the students they teach. They support us and help us as much as they can, not to mention everything actually works properly. I haven't met all the teachers I'll have this year, but I've heard good things about them all.

I have only been involved with WHS since the beginning of school year 2003-2004. This school has done wonders with my son. He prior school actually told him he was stupid and shouldn't look forward to much from his life. Wrong. WHS has helped my son realize he is not stupid and he has a lot to offer. He now carries a B average in school. He is happier than I thought he would be and he will graduate from high school to receive his diploma. I say kudos to WHS for digging in their heels to provide all these children what ever resources necessary to help them become success no matter what that would be.
