North Smithfield High School Accreditation

Following years of intense preparation which included a comprehensive self-study on the part of the NSHS staff and administration, North Smithfield High School has received official word from the NEASC Commission on Public Secondary Schools.

Based upon the Commission’s review of their North Smithfield report, the accreditation status of North Smithfield High School is  - "Warning" status for concerns identified in two major categories -  "School Resources for Learning" and "Community Resources for Learning" [see NEASC Accreditation Letter below.]

The entire report from New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) [NEASC - Final Report North Smithfield High School] can be found below.

  • The primary objective of the 16-member NEASC Visiting Committee was to assess the quality of the educational program at NSHS as measured by the NEASC Standards of Accreditation. The report provided evidence supporting our current standing, as well as commendations and recommendations in the seven NEASC Standard areas.
  • We were pleased to have received favorable feedback in the Standards of "Instruction", "Assessment of and for Learning" and "School Culture and Leadership."
  • The High School will immediately begin working with school district leaders and the School Committee to address the current conditions that threaten North Smithfield High School’s ongoing NEASC accreditation.
