While so much about education has changed in PHS's 200 year history - what hasn’t changed is our commitment and dedication to our students. Each year we welcome students who have attended Portland Middle Schools, schools outside of Portland, outside of Maine and from many countries around the world. Our diverse community is vibrant and enhances our learning community. Welcome to Portland High School! We encourage students and parents/guardians to read and follow the practices, guidelines and rules in our school handbook. This handbook has been developed within the framework of the Board of Education's Policy Manual.
