  • Kevin Bacon, Principal

    Welcome to our school.  

    As you get to know more about us, you'll find that Boise-Eliot/Humboldt is made great by staff, teachers, families, and volunteers working together to support our students. Our students bring leadership and rich background knowledge about the things that interest them and help them learn, and help us grow as educators in turn.

    As in many PPS buildings, we are facing equity challenges head-on, and have a number of systems in place to ensure that we're all working together to provide the best learning environment possible. It is not only an ongoing conversation, but something we bring to everyday practice. We have a dynamic STEAM curriculum for all K-8 learners, a Restorative Justice practice that positively acknowledges the complex lives of all young people, and are using MindUp to give K-2 students tools for dealing with the conflicts and emotions all young people face as they become young adults.

    If you are a BEH family, please consider how you can invest in whatever way is possible for you, from small donations like a ream of printer paper, or attending a PTA event, to joining PTA or volunteering in your child's classroom.  I do believe that every person has something unique to contribute, and that each person who enters our school can impact it for the better.

    You can always sign up for our email newsletters, track us on facebook, or follow my Twitter account.

    Dear Students, Families and Staff:

    I wanted to reach out to assure you that actions this week by the federal government to reduce protections for transgender students does not change or diminish our commitment to upholding clear PPS policies and guidelines that prohibit discrimination based on gender identity or expression.

  • Nine of our schools earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR rating

    At a ceremony on February 10 at Wilson High School in SW Portland, nine PPS schools were recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for achieving ENERGY STAR certification. To receive this certification, a building must perform in the top 25% of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency, and meet strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA. ENERGY STAR schools use an average of 35% less energy, and also release 35% less carbon dioxide.

  • Enrollment balancing for Peninsula, Chief Joseph and Ockley Green

    Soomaaliga Español Tiếng Việt
    The District-wide Boundary Review Advisory Committee (DBRAC) was formed in 2014 to help with enrollment balancing across Portland Public Schools. The committee’s most recent work led them to propose two options to help relieve crowding at Chief Joseph and to create more robust enrollment at Peninsula starting in the 2017-18 school year. On January 30, 2017, Interim Superintendent Bob McKean endorsed one of two DBRAC proposals.

    The proposal, which still requires the approval of the Board of Education, may be reviewed at, www.pps.net/dbrac.
