About Us

All Students at North Kingstown High School are required to pass three (3) credits of science in order to graduate. Science courses at NKHS are aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) which combine scientific theory with inquiry and problem solving skills, along with engineering practices. There are three paths that students can take to obtain these credits: Success Academy, Traditional and Accelerated.
