WELCOME TO THE NEWPORT SCHOOL BUILDING PROJECTS!
Welcome to Newport’s School Building website where you can track the progress of the Pell Elementary School addition and the new Rogers High School design & construction. We will be adding more information to this website as these projects progress. The Pell addition is moving quickly . We fast-tracked the completion date of the addition to be a year ahead of schedule. Construction Documents have been submitted to RIDE for and on-budget project (see more under “Our Projects”). The New Rogers High School project is still in the very early stages with School Program needs nearly complete. Early designs and layouts are being considered. You can see more under “Our Projects”.
Please return frequently to keep up to date on Newport’s School Building Projects, at minimum monthly but often weekly, updates will be made to keep residents informed.

This project, an addition to Pell Elementary School, will include 8 classrooms, 188 lockers, several bathrooms, 2 student breakout rooms, 2 teacher workrooms along with some traffic safety and storm water management. Schematic Design was approved by SBC & NSC in early July. RIDE approval is anticipated such that construction can begin in late August 2021.
NEW ROGERS HIGH SCHOOL
This project, a new Rogers High School, will provide a warm, safe, dry and state-of-the-art comprehensive high school. It will integrate academic, STEAM and Newport’s award-winning Career Technical Educational programs. All efforts are being made to make this new building sustainable during the construction and when operating.
