Dear Students, Parents/Guardians:
The Mission of North Providence High School is to educate all students in a safe, nurturing, and challenging environment which empowers them to become well-rounded individuals who are life-long learners and productive members of society. Further, the North Providence High School community has identified core values & beliefs which guide every aspect of our educational program. These core values & beliefs are reflected in 21st century learning expectations in the areas of knowledge, communication, problem-solving, and responsibility. These research based academic, civic, and social expectations specify what all students should know and be able to do upon graduation.
Our educational program is designed to engage students in active, collaborative learning that emphasizes the development of critical thinking skills to be applied to real-world concepts. Further, we believe that an educational program which is academically challenging and student-centered will provide our young adults with a strong foundation for future success in higher education and the global marketplace.
In developing a personalized program for each student, we are committed to maintaining clear and rigorous, and standards which encompass all the necessary skills that students must demonstrate in order to succeed as responsible citizens of the 21st century. These standards define what we expect of our students and assist us in identifying strategies to support effective curriculum, instruction, and assessment practices in every classroom.
As students select a program of study, it would be wise to discuss plans with teachers, counselors, and family members so that careful consideration can be made in developing a personalized plan which addresses all of the student’s educational needs. Lastly, we value community feedback about all aspects of our school, and we encourage you to inform us about our efforts to meet the needs of every student.
Our sincerest best wishes for a most positive and productive experience at North Providence High School.
Joseph B. Goho
