Overall experience: Mediocre
Diverse student population is a plus
I think it would be more beneficial for the students if another set of extracurricular classes were introduced that focused on more applicable life skills and potential career choices. To name a few as examples; Cosmetology and Criminal Justice have been the career choice for a number of students, yet no classes were offered to help the student work towards that career.
Review Newport High School
Newport High School has many different clubs, including, but not limited to: Bible club, HOSA, FFA, FBLA, FCCLA, Yearbook, Art Club, National Honors Society, and the Academic Honors Committee. Our biggest club is FFA, followed closely with HOSA and FBLA. Club members become a family through fun activities and competitions we attend. The administration is very supportive, especially of FFA. We are said to have the most advanced agricultural program in the country.
I have a handful of teachers who really did inspire me to work my very hardest. However, Newport High School is known to have teachers who don't like to do their job or slack off. I often find myself frustrated because I am not receiving an adequate education. I for one love to learn, and being in a school that doesn't take my needs seriously really does aggravate me.
