Portland Middle School's Principal's Page
Welcome to Portland Middle School!
As a community of learners, we recognize that relationships are at the very core of everything we do. ALL students are welcomed to our building. We work collaboratively to challenge each child in ways that encourage appropriate risk taking, self reflection and goal setting.
Middle school is the time of continuous change. Bodies, minds, and spirits are transitioning while students are building upon the academic foundation established to become lifelong learners. College and career exploration is encouraged and facilitated.
Portland Middle School provides a robust program which includes core academics and a full compliment of unified arts offerings. Students can learn Spanish or French, participate in band, chorus or both and will learn about the fine arts, cooking, sewing manufacturing and entrepreneurial skills. One to one devices are provided and our students have proven to be outstanding digital citizens.
We are proud of our history and will continue to listen, reflect and improve in the future. In 2014, Portland Middle School was honored as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. In addition, we were recognized as a School of Distinction (for Overall Academic Performance) by the Connecticut State Department of Education.
Together, we can and will continue to succeed!
