Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at North Scituate School. All staff have worked tirelessly getting our building and classrooms ready for students and families. We are all ready to hit the ground running to support all students in achieving their best in all areas of learning. We are looking forward to continuing to strengthen relationships and communication with families and our community. Please do not hesitate to call the school or email me if you have any questions or concerns throughout the year.

Who we are:

North Scituate Elementary School is located in the heart of Scituate Village in North Scituate, Rhode Island. Our school is a small, well-rounded network of teachers and staff who are committed to building relationships and engaging students for both academic and life success. We strive each day to model effective communication and work ethic in order to further instill these characteristics in our students. Our school is continually working to model our five core values; Safety First, Try Your Best, Act Responsibly, Respect All, and Self-control.
This year, we are proud to have implemented a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics) enrichment block to provide students with opportunities for hands-on experimental learning that ignites creativity and critical thinking. All staff has been instrumental in providing these unique learning opportunities for our students. Our staff has also worked diligently with the Highlander Institute to integrate technology into daily instruction. Teachers have been empowered to incorporate blended learning techniques to meet the needs of all learners while engaging them in the curriculum.
As a district, it is important that we recognize the need for an aligned curriculum that meets the needs of all students. This year, one of our main focuses is to research and determine a rigorous curriculum for K-12. This will provide our students and staff with a cohesive curriculum that will improve all levels of learning.
Our school community looks forward to events planned by our Parent Teacher Organization that brings families and community members together. This is an opportunity to spread kindness, support the community and build life-long partnerships for North Scituate Elementary School.


The Mission of our school is to provide a safe and enriching learning environment where the whole student is nurtured and developed.


The vision of our school is to prepare and motivate students by instilling in them critical reasoning skills, respect for themselves and one another and a commitment to excellence, kindness and perseverance.
