General Information

Literacy is a source of empowerment and is fundamental to the development of our intellectual growth. Here at Portland High we know that the future of our world depends on our ability to build and improve the communication skills of our students. Literacy skills are taught within every content area and are a focus of staff development and training. The diverse skill sets and educational experiences that our students enter high school with are a challenge and we manage those through differentiation, educational supports, such as literacy labs, and literacy development classes.
