2019-2020 Student Schedules

Kaitlin Hitchings, (Director of Guidance) is putting the final touches on student schedules this week. SHS school counselors spent some time last week meeting with students with schedule conflicts and proposed options for potential solutions. We ask that you continue to be patient and proactive as we finish this process. We try our best to accommodate each student's scheduling need, however, scheduling conflicts can create some compromises within student schedules. Please contact your teenager's school counselor with any concerns. Students will have the first two weeks of school in Aug/Sept. to make any schedule changes. Final student schedules will be available on Powerschool two weeks before the start of school.

XQ-RI Student and Parents Survey

Scituate High School has advanced to the next step in the XQ-RI High School Redesign Process! What this means is that our school is one step closer to potentially receiving a $500,000 grant and implementing a “big idea” to redesign what education looks like here. Scituate is one of 20 school that will be receiving a $25,000 mini grant to pilot our programs next school year. In order to complete the process, the RI Department of Education requires an anonymous parent and student survey. Please take some time to complete the survey. Thank you!
