PHS Annual 8th Grade Open House Rescheduled to Jan. 12
Posted on 01/08/2015

Portland High School's Annual 8th Grade Open House has been rescheduled to Monday, Jan. 12 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The event was originally slated for Thursday, Jan. 8, but the date has been changed for weather-related reasons.

The open house will allow families of eighth-graders to learn all about PHS as those students decide which of Portland’s three high schools they want to attend next year.

The Portland Public Schools offers eighth-graders a unique opportunity to choose between its three high schools, each with a distinctive personality and offerings. Events such as open houses aid eighth-grade families in choosing a school by a Jan. 30, 2015 commitment deadline.

Portland students may attend any of the city’s three public high schools – Portland, Deering or Casco Bay – regardless of where they live in the city.

Deering High School held its open house on Dec. 4 and Casco Bay High School held its event on Dec. 11.

At Portland High School’s open house on Jan. 12, families will learn what makes PHS – home of the Bulldogs and located right in the heart of Portland with the city as its campus – a unique high school, according to Principal Deborah Migneault.
