    I lived in GMH housing at Naval Station Newport. My address was technically in Middletown, RI even though most of the important buildings (Naval War College) on base are actually in Newport, RI. The place is huge and it's run from Newport to Portsmouth with housing in all 3 towns. I liked it very much. No big complaints from me but I'm a civilian so I'm not sure how it is if you are military and living there. I lived in an apartment setting but they have tons of really nice family houses to. The schools are great. You'll have a ton of choices so it really depends on what town you end up living in. I'm not sure if they have told you the kids have to go to a Newport school or in a different town but once you find out I can recommend the good ones to you. I grew up here so I can probably answer about 99% of your questions. Feel free to PM any questions. I'm happy to help.

    http://www.newportrischools.org/ that is the link to the public schools website. I have lived in RI all my life, so if you have any questions I will try to answer them. I don't know much about the school system there though. http://www.greatschools.net/city/Newport/RI that is a link to reviews of some of the schools. Hope this helps a little, and feel free to PM me if you would like to ask me more questions.

    I have no idea about the housing but I am not far from Newport, just down in CT, and I LOVE having excuses to go up to Newport. How old are your kids?

    I don't know about the schools or anything.. but I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Newport. It's gorgeous. And from a touristy point of view.. there are great beaches, shopping, the cliff walk, the mansions. You're going to love it! That's mine and DB's get-away spot.
