Newport is a relatively small school that consists of middle school and high school students in one building. The classes offered are fairly rigorous and challenging, especially the AP courses. Sadly we don’t have much funding so the school does have some downfalls. Many students who attend are considered low income. We are situated in a very poor town where lots of illegal situations occur frequently. Newport however, is a very caring school and comes together to help the community whenever possible.
Although my time at Newport High school has been stressful, I am very grateful for the things I have learned and the opportunities I have been given. At Newport, the teachers are very supportive. They not only help students who come to them seeking guidance but also offer them kindness and encouragement. Concerning technology, the school provides every high school student with a laptop, which they are able to take home each day as long as they have signed the necessary paperwork. Furthermore, students participate in a variety of sports, clubs, music programs, etc. My favorite club is Student Council because it gives me leadership experience, allows me to improve the events held at my school and brings me closer to my peers as we plan and attend many different school events. At the end of the day, I am blessed to attend Newport High School. The teachers I've had, friends I've made, and things I've experienced help shape the person I am today.
