Welcome to Newport High School

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Newport and working with you in the coming months to create a course schedule for next year.

Meanwhile, listed below are short video clips (most about two minutes) that will help you get to know us.

Please plan to enjoy them one at a time or throughout January and February. Talk with your student about what you learn.

In spring, enrolled students will receive an invitation to meet with our counselors to start building a course schedule. Students will meet with counselors at school, and we’ll hold a virtual session for families. We also offer fairs and discussions about how to plan a good fit for your student.

 

Meanwhile, use these resources to get to know our community. We look forward to meeting students AND families.
