    Extracurriculars: 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.
