Scituate High School Honor Roll Change

At the end of last year, the Scituate leadership team, department chairs, selected students, and parents, were part of a work group to revisit our honor roll requirements. In an effort to increase rigor and provide a goal of motivation, perseverance, and academic celebration among our students, we changed the criteria for honor roll making it more rigorous. The changes were published in our parent-student handbook for the 2017-2018 school year.

After reviewing the report for quarter one using the new standards, we have decided to revert back to last year's honor roll requirements. The list of students who made honor roll for quarter one will be released in early December. We will continue to look at new requirements for the 2018-2019 school year to make it fair and equitable for all students and will be seeking feedback from all Scituate stakeholders!


  • To achieve HIGH HONORS WITH DISTINCTION, a student must attain a Grade Point Average of 4.0000 with no grades below a B- in any subject.

  • To achieve HIGH HONORS, a student must attain a minimum GPA of 3.7000 with no grades below C- in any subject.

  • To achieve HONORS, a student must attain a minimum GPA of 3.0000 with no grades below C- in any subject. Weight factor will be applied to Honors’ courses only for GPA purposes.

Student Pictures and ID Cards

This week, all students will receive their school picture packet. Additionally, all students will be given a student ID card with their picture on it. Please reinforce with Scituate students that they should keep this card in a safe location as no replacement cards will be printed. Any Scituate student who shows their new ID card at an athletic event will now get into the event for free!

Teams competed in three instant design challenges, a "shark tank" presentation, and a trivia quiz. Though we did not earn top prizes, e had a lot of fun, and MakeRI made donations to the technology or engineering programs at all participating schools.

PLTW Biomedical Science Career Pathway

Human Body Systems: Students continue to further investigate the brain and the major communication systems of the body. Superficial and deep brain maps were created on swim caps and students also dissected a sheep brain in order to more concretely visualize the structure of the brain.

Principles of Biomedical Science

Students in Principles of Biomedical Science have begun working on a diabetes unit. They have researched risk factors and symptoms of diabetes and completed a lab. The students learned why glucose tolerance testing and insulin testing are important for diagnosing diabetes and what the results of each of these tests mean.

Honors Biology with Mr. Goffe

Students wrap up a unit on photosynthesis and aerobic cellular respiration investigating the factors influencing rates of ATP production measuring variable changes in carbon dioxide and pH. Students reviewed a list of materials and designed and experiment and then tested their hypotheses.
