    Overall Experience: I appreciate the class officers trying to raise school spirit even though that task can be difficult. In general, Newport has many resources and activities for students who are passionate about a subject and since so many people are pushing themselves academically, you can find friends and support. But I think with any high school, a lot of it's about popularity and how much people like you and bullying is a problem, like in any high school. Students aren't always nice to each other.

    Overall Experience: Newport is a really great place. It always challenges students to do their best and offers so many different AP and regular classes to take. There are so many sports and clubs too that other schools don't offer such and you'll meet great people by joining an after school activity. There are some people at Newport who aren't the best though, the school is heavily seperated into cliques, however it's not hard to find the right group to talk to. Teachers are very kind and helpful, but there are a few who have no idea what they're teaching. It's a very tough school that you need to work hard to do well in.

    Overall Experience: Newport really prepared me for college. People at college stressed about classes and their difficulty my whole freshman year, but the classes that I was taking were similar in difficulty to the AP classes that I had taken my senior year, so I was not as stressed.
