Congratulations to Rogers High School Seniors Mateo Beccar-Varela and Timothy J. Pratt for being invited to compete in the United States Presidential Scholar Program.

With the potential for our area to be impacted by the effects Hurricane Joaquin the City of Newport would like to take this opportunity to inform or remind residents of their ability to enroll in the City’s Mass Notification System, Code Red. This tool is used for both Emergency and Non-Emergency situations and allows the City to contact residents with important messages.
The Newport Area Career and Technical Center (NACTC) kicks-off an informational campaign designed to inform the public about the different types of educational opportunities that are available to high school students and highlight the fact that all students in Newport and the surrounding districts have the right to attend NACTC at no additional cost to families.
The Rogers High School Robotics Team takes top honors in both divisions of the 5th annual SeaPerch Undersea Robotics Derby on Saturday, 31 January 2015. Rogers Robotics entered two teams, Team Thor for the Open Division, and The Pink Panthers for the Stock Division. Both Teams won Overall Champion in their divisions. The competition was fierce, and the Open Division title finish was a sudden death tiebreaker. Team Thor rallied and came away victorious, winning 1st Place Overall in the advanced division.
