Newport Senior High School Reviews

Overall, I have had a great experience at Newport! We are extremely academically-focused, and we are known for our excellent work ethic. We have neat educational opportunities and programs like Aids Student Peer Educators at Newport (ASPEN), DECA, CISCO, Teaching Academy, Culinary Arts classes, and many more. Students are also very involved in student leadership and clubs which I love. Last year, there were complaints that the administration did not care for the well-being of the student body and instead only cared about our grades and how well our test scores made the school look. There have been fewer complaints this year, but I have not seen any real changes in the administration's attitude towards students.

Extremely competitive but ultimately probably helpful. The Actual environment is generally high strung, but things like bullying aren’t a problem because literally no one has the time to bully others. Academics are highly stressed but the school is pretty progressive and offers many different classes and opportunities to explore whatever path you want to be on. I haven’t had a particularly awful experience, but it’s just one notch up from mediocre. There are zero similarities to high school musical, but you do get a sense that the school is preparing you for college and the real world. There is very little mercy here.
Newport on paper is a very good school, state of the art technology programs, laptops for every student, over-achieving academic fervor and standardized testing. However, this tends to be a double edged sword for Newport, as students commonly share that they experience mental health issues such as depression. A universal understanding throughout Newport is that mental health issues must be dealt solemnly by the student and how they eat,sleep,study,etc. A lot of the stress of Newport is due to high academic pressure and a relentless curriculum supported by the teachers. Now the students who excel at self studying and independent work will find Newport to be bearable, but students who learn through instruction and group work will find this adjustment a tall hurdle to overcome. The students are plagued with these pressures, and the lack of school spirit is only a catalyst for these pressures. For most students Newport hardly every feels like a supportive community.
