Student Advancement at NNPS

At Newport News Public Schools, student advancement is comprised of four departments working together to prepare college, career and citizen-ready students: Special Education, Gifted Services, and School Counseling.

Special Education

Our goal is to ensure that each student with a disability has the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skills, and competencies consistent with his/her potential to achieve.

Gifted Services

We provide a variety of programs designed to meet the needs of students with exceptional intellectual abilities from kindergarten through twelfth grade.

School Counseling

Our professional guidance counselors assist students, parents, school staff, and outside agencies daily in helping young people strive for and achieve their highest goals and aspirations.
