Newport School District Reviews

3 reviews
We have a new principal as of 2016 and even though she has made some good changes, such as implementing a new program of study option. She also makes it hard to the teachers to teach and tends to pick favorites. I mainly wish that our administration system was better about communicating with the students about their academic needs.

The community , staff and students are amazing. The school district cares about the students and works with the community to provide for them.
The school promotes a climate that feeds bullying. The admin does not care for its students or teachers. Enrollment is dropping and turnover for teachers is very high.
