Scituate High School Earns Four Star Rating!

Scituate High School is proud to announce SHS is one of ten Rhode Island high schools to receive a four-star school rating, as awarded by the Rhode Island Department of Education - RIDE in a recent assessment report. The highest possible ranking by RIDE is five stars, putting SHS toward the top.

According to the RIDE website, the report, “provides information about Rhode Island’s 2018 state assessment administration in English language arts and mathematics … from traditional measures like test scores and graduation rates, to broader measures like chronic absenteeism for students and teachers. These data result in a Star Rating for every public school in the state … which simplifies and summarizes overall performance.”

Congratulations to the amazing administration, teachers, staff members, and, of course, students at Scituate High!
