Newport High school is a small school in a small town. Accordingly, opportunities are limited. However, there are several notable teachers and classes, including AP math classes and a well-developed music program. There is also a variety of career-based programs such as robotics and computer science, fabrication and welding, and auto-tech. The actual high school building is very old and built into a hill, creating a dreary school atmosphere. There is also no air conditioning, which makes the school very hot at the beginning and end of the school year. Overall, the high school has some problems but offers a surprising variety of classes for such a small school.

Newport High School is an extraordinarily welcoming and scholastic school, with an average GPA of 3.5, students are encourage to succeed in their academics while also maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle. The only parts of Newport I believe need work are the extra curriculum. Although they boast a strong club amount and diverse amount of activities to do after school, I believe that the administration fails to encourage students to create more clubs on more niche topics.
Newport is ranked as one of the top schools in the entire state of Washington. International students choose to come to this school, and many teachers fight their way to place a job here too. Despite all the achievements Newport High School has received, there is an obvious burden on the students. Having a high Asian population, competition gets out of hand and stresses students out. Teachers tend to ignore the stress levels and anxiety exhibited by their students.
