2018-2019 Program of Study is Out!

Students in grades 8-11 will have a two week window to review course requirements, talk with teachers, family members, and school counselors and will choose their courses for the 2018-2019 school year. Students should visit the Digital Program of Studies Website below and begin to make choices for next year on Wednesday, March 14th at 3:00 PM. After students have uploaded their choices into PowerSchool, each student will meet with their Guidance counselor, one-on-one, during the month of April so that next year's schedule can be built.

Student Survey

The window for the RI Dept. of Education Surveyworks survey is now open for students in grades 9-12. Please encourage your SHS teenager to complete this survey. The anonymous information will be used at the state level and locally here at the high school to make informed decisions. Thank you!

Midpoint of Quarter Three

It is hard to believe however, we are now at the midpoint of quarter three. We encourage all students and their families to check PowerSchool and communicate with teachers and school counselors. The quarter will end on April 4th

The following information announces the students who have won the prestigious Wickford Art Association Scholarship Awards.

The work submitted this year was so strong that it had the judges scratching their heads for quite some time! That being said, the WAA feels that each student chosen to represent their district should be honored, as that alone is quite a feat.
