NKHS earns recognition for counseling

The American School Counselors Association has announced that North Kingstown High School has been designated as a Recognized ASCA Model Program school and will be recognized during a special ceremony at ASCA's annual conference in Chicago, Ill., on June 26.

Awarded to schools that align with the criteria set in the "ASCA National Model: A Framework for School Counseling," the RAMP designation recognizes schools that are committed to delivering a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program and an exemplary educational environment. North Kingstown High School is to be commended for its dedication to serving all students with a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program that shows how students are different as a result of what school counselors do.

North Kingstown High School's school counseling program was reviewed three times by a panel of school counseling professionals in order to receive this award. The school is one of 21 to achieve RAMP status since the program's inception. They are the first school in New England to receive the award and only the seventh high school nationwide to be honored.
