  • Welcome to Jackson Middle School

    Welcome to Jackson Middle School. It is a pleasure and an honor to have the opportunity to share with you all what makes Jackson a fantastic place for our middle schoolers. With an amazing teaching staff, Jackson's teachers deeply understand the middle schooler and work together, with parents, as a community! As a Bernstein School of Artful Learning, we understand that middle school is not just about reading, writing, and math but also about nurturing the adolescent and preparing them for high school and the world beyond. A rich dynamic elective program balances our core instruction with art integration at every turn providing students with experiences and opportunities in inquiry, exploration, reflection, and creation.
    Kevin Crotchett, Principal

  • Next Steps: Enrollment Balancing

    Dear Portland Public Schools Community,
    I accepted the role of Interim Superintendent of Portland Public Schools (PPS) at a challenging moment in time. During my first month on the job, I initiated an assessment of the programmatic and system priorities identified by the Board of Education for the 2016-17 school year. After these priorities were established, a number of additional priorities emerged that also require attention:

  • Indoor rowing education comes to Portland Public Schools

     Recent Erg Ed event in Seattle WA.
    PPS has been awarded the 2016-2017 Erg Ed Grant. This grant provides erg equipment, access to the Erg Ed Curriculum, and comprehensive teacher training throughout the year.
  • PPS employee recognized as a hero

    Union painter Bryan Meyers has received a Citizen Life Saving Award from local Gladstone police. Bryan’s quick thinking and actions saved his neighbor’s life during a cardiac arrest earlier this year. Click more for a local news story that includes gripping audio of the 911 call.
  • Civic Scholars Recognized

    Each year teachers around the state are selected as Civic Scholars by state house and senate members.

    These teachers are recognized for outstanding abilities and commitment to civic education. So far five teachers from Portland Public Schools have been selected.
