Freshmen Orientation (for freshmen and new students by invitation)

North Kingstown High School is very excited to welcome our Freshmen this upcoming school year! The first day of school will be Freshmen Orientation Day at NKHS.   It is a nice day for the students to become acquainted with the building, routines, and procedures without other classes in the building.   Leadership students, faculty, and staff will focus the day on making the freshmen feel welcome by easing their transition into the high school community.
