Portland High has a long standing tradition of excellence in the classroom; our students attend the best colleges and universities in the country. In addition, the school offers numerous programs and support systems to ensure that students have every opportunity to succeed.
The Portland High School community is incredibly special. Staff and students at PHS describe the school as unique, safe, exciting, energizing, welcoming, and inclusive. Students and staff consider themselves to be part of the Portland family. There is a shared sense of purpose at PHS, as the school community is dedicated to promoting understanding, tolerance, and inclusiveness in its dedication to academic achievement.
Once again this year, we will hold a Town Hall Meeting to discuss the development of the PPS FY 2016 budget. The meeting will take place on Thursday, January 29, at 6:30 p.m. at the Lyman Moore Middle School library. This is a great opportunity for parents and other community members to give their input on budgeting priorities for the 2015-2016 school year. The online Neighbor-to-Neighbor Budget Toolkit is also now available http://www2.portlandschools.org/budget-toolkit/ to encourage public participation in the development of the FY16 school budget.
