Newport RI Communities
People serving in the military who get transferred to Naval Station Newport will enjoy the many different areas and towns to choose from here, as well as the variety of houses, condos and townhomes available. Depending on where you settle, you could be just minutes from the base, in a nearby area like Middletown or Portsmouth.
One thing you can count on if you get transferred to Newport is good public schools in the area. While Newport and Middletown boast excellent schools, Portsmouth's education facilities are second to none. There is Howard Hathaway (K-3), Melville Elementary (PK-3), Portsmouth Middle School (4-8) and Portsmouth High School. Anyways, if you get a permanent change of station to Newport, you won't have to worry about schools.
