Scituate High School Ranks Four Stars Again!
According to the RIDE website, the report, “provides information about Rhode Island’s 2019 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!
From our Special Education Department
We are pleased to share a number of new program supports at Scituate High School this year. Mrs. Reichert, Certified Behavior Analyst, provides ongoing training and consultation to clinical staff, teachers and instructional assistants to support the social emotional needs of many students. Additionally, Mrs. Reichert provides training in highly specialized researched-based instructional strategies for differently abled students in our life skills classes. Her expertise and experience in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has proved to be invaluable.
Transition is a common topic at every planning meeting at the high school level. Starting in middle school with increased focus as students approach the end of their high school experience, transition planning and career assessment are critical to success in post-secondary education and employment. We have contracted with a local employment specialist to complement our transition expert, educators and instructional staff. This allows us to provide a more diverse set of experiences for students in need. We look forward to continued expansion of these supports
Speaking again of transitions, we are pleased to share that Mrs. Testoni, our valued Special Education Department Chair has fulfilled a career goal by moving to the Scituate Guidance Department. We are excited to know that she will remain actively involved in guiding, planning and advocating for students with Individual Education Programs. With this, we look forward to sharing news of a great new addition to our staff shortly.

There’s a winter hat/glove/mitten donation drive going on now until Nov 19, also hosted by National Honor Society. Teams of 4 donate new warm winter gear and are eligible to win a hot cocoa and cookie party. Mrs. Morton and her students have already made cozy fleece blankets to donate. Winter gear will be given to Scituate DHS, Foster DHS, and Help the Homeless RI.
