    • 1 Session = 1 Semester
    • In-person and online options, all classes are FREE.

  • Principal's Update 5/26

    Dear Cleveland Families,

    When we return next week, we will be entering the last days of the school year. We want our students to finish strong and have a successful kick off to summer.

    Senior Information

    Senior finals are May 30 and 31 with the seniors’ last day of school being June 1. Seniors need to be present on June 1 for the all important graduation rehearsal and senior check out. Graduation is June 6 at 4:30 PM at Providence Park. The senior recognition assembly held on May 25 highlighted the accomplishments of the class of 2023 in academic, athletic and community service. The all school assembly celebrated our seniors and inspired our underclassmen. The seniors were serenaded at the end by a performance from 4 senior teachers: Jamie Incorvia, vocals, Jessie Eller-Isaacs, vocals, Tim Graham, guitar and vocals and Steve Nims, guitar. It was amazing to witness the proud tradition of Cleveland honoring its seniors. The Prom at Omsi was equally successful with wonderful weather and a sense of being in community with one another. There was ping pong, hacky sack, a photo booth and, of course, dancing. I loved seeing the seniors and their guests having such a good time.

    Finals Schedule

    Students in grades 9-11 will have final exams on June 12 - 14.

    June 12, Final Exam Schedule - periods 1, 2, and 4

    June 13, Final Exam Schedule - periods 5, 6 and 8

    June 14, Final Exam Schedule - periods 3 and 7, make-up period

    June 14 is the last day of school for underclassmen. The week before finals will have two opportunities for Flex on Monday, June 5 and Tuesday, June 6. On Friday, June 9, we will have an all 8 period schedule where students will go to all of their classes that day. That day will allow every student to check in with their teachers before finals.

    PTA Request

    The CHS PTA supports our school in so many ways such as providing teacher grants, student affinity group grants, and recognizing our staff for all the different staff appreciation weeks. They have hosted evening events to provide a forum for parents to learn about school safety and all the mental health supports available at Cleveland. They welcome new members. You can check out their website here: . You can easily donate to the PTA by using the QR code or texting: text CHS23for23 to 44-321.:


    CHS Site Council for 2023-24

    This school year we restarted our site council which is composed of parents, teachers, support staff, administrators and students. Oregon law (ORS 329.704) specifies the makeup of school site councils. This group advises on the school continuous improvement plan and the expenditures of grants. Duncan Parks, Amy Lee and Kelly Vanderwal served this year. If you are interested in being on the site council for next year, please submit your name to me or the CHS PTA ( by June 9. The PTA will officially elect the parent representatives.

  • Principal's Update

    Dear Cleveland Families,

    I hope everyone had a safe and warm couple of snow days. I wanted to give you a general update and share some celebrations with you.

    Progress Reports

    Teachers are submitting their progress reports for students by the end of the day today. Progress reports are specifically to alert you if your student is not doing well in class (earning a D or F). These are not grades that get put on the transcript which is the official record of your student’s credits earned and the official GPA. These reports should give you information about where your student may need support. Also remember, that all progress reports and grade reports indicate how a student is progressing on achieving the learning standards of the class for a given time period. We are early in the second semester and students have time to improve.



    Currently, our students are forecasting for their classes for next school year. They will each meet with their counselor to review their choices to ensure they are choosing classes that they need for graduation as well classes that match their interests and desires. We use that information to build the schedule of classes for next year. 


    IB Events

    The IB Extended Essay Showcase event was canceled last week because of the weather. It has been rescheduled for March 8 from 7:00 PM until 9:00 PM. The Extended Essay is written by IB full diploma candidates as part of their portfolio of work. This essay is a culmination of academic research that the candidates began in their junior year. They pick the topic, develop their question and work with a teacher advisor at the school to complete the writing. I learned so much last year from attending, and you will surely be impressed by the curiosity and deep learning that students bring to this work.

    Our IB art students are presenting their exhibitions at Gallery 114 in the Pearl District. These students present a body of work curated by themselves. The work will be on display throughout the month of March. Emily Pratt, our IB art teacher, works with these students over the course of 2 years, and this exhibition is an integral part of their IB art evaluation. I have been deeply moved every year when I have seen the work produced by our students and read their artists' statements. It is also very exciting for them to show their work at a gallery.

    Security and Safety Update

    In January, the PTA hosted a panel discussion with representatives from PPS security services, Portland Police Bureau and Portland Community Safety Division. Questions specific to the shooting incident in December were raised in addition to  questions about future actions. Although the question of School Resource Officers was raised, the decision about having that program is one that is made at the district level. District leadership has been having meetings with students and various employee groups to discuss safety. These discussions are just beginning. Many high school events have had additional police presence including our winter dance and some home basketball games. 


    While Cleveland is not yet scheduled for modernization, we are receiving security upgrades. First, the fence around the campus is complete. This fence allows us to have a  more closed campus. The gates are locked during the school day. Additionally, we are one of the first wave of schools scheduled to get security cameras installed. This is a major structural upgrade, and the project will be managed by PPS. We have already participated in two walk-throughs to discuss placement of the cameras which will be both exterior and interior. 

    One idea that was discussed in the January meeting resonated with me because the idea centered on community and the role it plays in neighborhood safety. We strive everyday to create a community at school where each student feels valued. We greet them every morning at the entrances when we check their IDs. We are working with our leadership classes in a safety campaign that focuses on our responsibilities to each other to keep our school safe. We have three Campus Safety Agents (CSAs) who build relationships and who center their work on safety. 

    SE Powell Workgroup

    This group, formed by State Senator Kathleen Taylor, is comprised of representatives from PBOT, ODOT, Tri-met, Bike Out Loud, The Street Trust, Oregon Walks, CHS, PTAs from CHS, Kellogg and Creston, and Titan Freight have been meeting to discuss safety upgrades to the inner SE Powell corridor. You will probably have noticed the changes that have already occurred at SE 26th and SE Powell. One proposal for SE 26th in front of the school is to add an enhanced crosswalk. PBOT is applying for a grant for the funding and could start construction as early as this summer.


    Staff Parking

    The parking lot in front of the school is designated for PPS staff and visitors only. Some of the signs have been defaced and may not be clear to read. Some of the spots are reserved for specific employees or employee groups. Other spots are numbered. We have had some days where staff could not park because the lot was full in part because students had parked there. No PPS school has designated parking spaces for students. Please remind your student if they drive to school to not park in the lot in front of the school. We will be reminding them as well.



    The winter season is over and our athletes proved to be great competitors. Both the girls and boys basketball teams made it to the state playoffs. Although neither team made it to the elite 8 this year, I know you will see Cleveland in the Chiles Center in the future. It was wonderful to celebrate the seniors for both teams on the make-up game from the snow day. Our wrestling team brought home a 4th place plaque from the state tournament.  Our Ski team placed first in League and is headed to state competition. Practice is already well underway for spring sports. Let’s hope the weather cooperates to have a fun season!



    Our music program had a fabulous day of competition on May 4 at the PIL solo and ensemble contest hosted here at Cleveland. Gary Riler, our band director, commented that the event went smoothly and was managed very well by the music program student leadership team. Additionally, our school effectively swept the competition. In every category that we had an entry, we placed at least one student in the top 2 97% of the time. Congratulations to our music students and our band director and choir director, Alllison Cottrell. Now on to State!


    Constitution Team

    Our constitution team made it to State again this year in the We the People competition, and it was exciting to see them in action. Our students are amazing with their breadth of knowledge, poise and team work. We placed 4th in State. Our teacher, Sadie Adams, brought this program to Cleveland, and it continues to grow. She commented that she has over 50 students interested in being involved next year. 


    Speech and Debate

    From Coach Gonzales and Coach Fox:

    Our Cleveland  Speech and Debate Team (The Cannibals) dominated the Winter Season. They grabbed the first place Sweepstakes Trophy at the big college invitationals: Lewis and Clark and at the University of Oregon. They even broke an in-house record sending 75 entries to the Reynolds High tournament. (The old record was set in 2014 with 56 entries at McMinnville.) The National Speech and Debate ranks the Cannibals as the number #1 team in the State with 267 points. 


    National Merit Scholarship Finalists

    Cleveland had 5 students who qualified to be National Merit Scholarship Finalists:

    Stella Greenvoss

    Hazel Saydak

    August Shin

    Benjamin Stevenson

    Claire Yeates

  • Classes are Cancelled Tomorrow

    Dear Cleveland Community,

    Today was a stark and devastating reminder that, while our school works to provide a safe space for students, the epidemic of gun violence continues to impact our city. The Portland Police Bureau is continuing their investigation into the shooting incident outside of our campus where a student experienced non-life threatening injuries. They  issued a press release this afternoon.

    Tomorrow, December 13, will be a non-instructional day for students. Classes will not be held. Teachers and staff will be meeting to plan for supporting students when they return to school.

    We know students will be processing this event in different ways. If students are in need of in-person support tomorrow, they are welcome to come into school after 11:00 AM. Our Cleveland counseling and student support team will be on-hand to connect with students. 

    A “to-go” lunch will be provided in the cafeteria at the normal lunch time of 11:41 AM-12:16 PM if your student would like to come get food.

    We are working closely with our district and community partners to plan a trauma-informed return to school and will be in touch with you as we finalize details. Please see below for resources.

    Thank you students, staff, and families for the strength and resilience you demonstrated today. As always, email me at if you have any questions. We are Cleveland!

    Cleveland High School 

  • Principal's Update 11/10

    Dear Cleveland Families,

    As we enter the second quarter of the semester, I want to highlight the academic support for students and activities that are happening at Cleveland.

    Quarter 1 Grades
    Teachers submitted their Quarter 1 grades on Monday and you should be able to see them in ParentVue. These grades do not appear on the transcript. Rather, these grades indicate the progress that your student has made in achieving the learning standards in each of their classes. Students have ample time to raise their grades before the end of the semester. Good communication with the teacher will always be an avenue for working on an academic plan to improve. I noticed on some teacher comments that students needed to complete a project or paper or make up a test to improve their grade. Our Flex periods allow students access to teachers to get that extra help or to work on assignments. Please encourage your students to use Flex and communicate with their teachers. In addition, we have tutoring opportunities on campus which are advertised throughout the school. Your student’s counselor is another great resource for students building an academic plan for success.

    We have noticed a dip in attendance as the school year has progressed. While we know students may need to be absent for appointments or illness, we also know that attending class is paramount to student success. One trend that occurs is students returning late from lunch. I hear students comment on the length of the lunch period. The school bell schedule is determined at the district level to ensure that all schools have the correct number of instructional hours per the requirements of the Oregon Department of Education. Our lunch period is the same length it was last year. When students are more than 23 minutes late to class, they are considered absent. If you see that trend in your student’s attendance with periods after lunch (periods 3 and 7), please consider working on a lunch plan with them to be to class on time. 

    Fall Musical
    Our fall musical, Zombie Prom, opened last night and there are still opportunities to come see it. The play runs tonight with a showtime of 7:00 PM. There are two showings on Saturday - a Matinee at 3:00 PM and an evening show at 7:00 PM. I get the privilege of hearing the rehearsals from my office, and I can assure you that the play will be fabulous. Tickets are sold at the door: $10 for adults and $5 for minors, cash only. There will also be concession sales.

    Family Conferences
    We are happy to host conferences this year with in-person options. Monday, November 21 will be in person with drop-in sessions available as well as scheduled times to meet with teachers. On this day, scheduled appointments are throughout the day with drop in options from 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM. Tuesday, November 22 will be virtual with meetings held with teachers using Google Meet. There will be three sessions of appointments each day: morning (8:30 AM - 12:00 PM), afternoon (1:00 - 4:30 PM) and evening (5:30 - 8:00 PM). We will publish the appointment sign-ups on Wednesday, November 16. These appointments will be ten minutes in length to allow both time to meet with the teacher and time for transition to the next appointment. Conferences are a great way to connect with your student’s teachers and discuss strengths as well as areas of growth for your student. The conference schedule simply does not allow enough appointment slots for every parent to meet with every teacher. Please think about which teachers you most want to connect with to support your student. Conferences are one opportunity to connect, but you can also reach out to teachers and counselors at any time to discuss your student’s academic needs.

    Traffic Safety
    Last month, a community safety forum was hosted in our auditorium to address pedestrian, cyclist and car safety at the intersection of SE 26th Ave. and SE Powell Blvd. Representatives from ODOT, PBOT, Trimet and PPS were available to present ideas and listen to feedback. State Senator Kathleen Taylor has formed a workgroup to monitor the progress of improvements. We have representatives from our staff, including me, and the PTA. Please continue to share any concerns you may have about the intersection with me, and I will be sure to bring them up at the workgroup meetings.

    Hate Speech in the Neighborhood
    Instances of the ‘n’ word are still occurring in the neighborhood around the school. While the instances have not recently occurred on our campus, we do clean the graffiti near the school campus when we see it and make a record of it. I know some of you have also been involved in cleaning the graffiti that you have found. Please continue to send me pictures of the graffiti which I will pass on to the police. I filed a police report earlier in the school year, and the case has been assigned to an officer with whom I am in contact. If you happen to witness the actual act of this hate speech being written or have an image from any exterior cameras you may have at your homes, please report those to the police or send them to me to give to the officer working on this investigation. The continuous onslaught of seeing this word harms our students and staff of color. We will continue our work to address this hate speech, and thank you for your vigilance and attention to reporting and cleaning it in our neighborhood.

  • Principal's Update 10/10

    Dear Cleveland Families,

    I hope everyone is well. This update is to highlight some activities that are coming up at Cleveland.


    This Wednesday, October 12, is PSAT day where we will be proctoring this exam for all sophomores and juniors who registered for it. Each year Cleveland has students who are recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program as commended students and semi-finalists based on their PSAT scores achieved in the junior year. It is a school day where attendance will be taken. The school officially ends at 1:30 PM. However, students taking the PSAT may leave after they finish their exam. Students not taking the PSAT may leave after lunch. Their activities for the day include some work to be completed at home.

    Here is a breakdown of the day for the different classes:

    • All 12th graders and 11th graders who DID NOT register for the PSAT will be coming to school at 8:30. Students will sign in on the 1st floor and attend three hour-long College and Career sessions. Students must pre-register for these sessions on Monday and Tuesday and will be able to do so through their PPS email. There are over 15 different organizations coming to provide information sessions and opportunities for students interested in exploring life after high school. Students will be able to complete CRLEs (Career Related Learning Experience) after the sessions are completed.
    • 11th graders who registered in September and ALL 10th graders are taking the PSATs. These students MUST arrive before 8 am. See additional information from our Special Events Coordinator, Jan Watt.
    • 9th graders will be coming to school at 8:30 and meeting in their Academies. Each Academy has a unique half-day plan for students to engage in community-building activities. Academies will be meeting in different parts of the building and off campus. Look for specific details from Academy teachers on Monday and Tuesday of this week. 

    Initial Meeting Place for Each Academy:

    • Pacific: Franklin St Gym Entrance (8:45 departure)
    • Stumptown: Field (SE 31st at 8:45)
    • Tillamook: Auditorium (8:30)
    • Trillium: Library (8:30)
    • Wy’East: Portables on 28th Street (8:30)

    Lunch will be available in the cafeteria for students from 11:30-12:30. Transportation for students in our Intensive Skills Program will receive pick up at 1:30 on Wednesday. 
    Please email Sean Murray ( with any questions or concerns about Wednesday.


    Our homecoming week starts October 17. The advanced leadership class is planning a variety of events to include decorating the halls, making homecoming floats, and hosting a homecoming dance. The homecoming football game on October 21 against Ida B. Wells will start at 6:30 PM at the Cleveland stadium. The dance will be in the gym after the football game and will run from 9:00 -11:00 PM. The leadership class will be selling tickets before school, at lunch and after school starting next week. Students will be asked to sign a pledge about dance behavior. The theme of the dance is Starry Night. As is customary in PPS, our homecoming dance is open to all grades and is for our students only, with no outside guests. 

    SE Powell Blvd. Community Safety Forum

    Oregon State Senator Kathleen Taylor and State Representatives Rob Nosse and Karin Power are hosting a community safety forum on October 20 at 6:00 PM in the Cleveland Auditorium. Representatives will be there from ODOT, PBOT, Trimet and PPS to participate in the discussion. Please come to share your thoughts about safety on SE Powell Blvd.

    Community Safety Forum Flyer

    Student Supports

    Last week we had trained volunteers from the trauma intervention program of Portland/Vancouver here to support students and staff after the tragic death of Sarah Pliner at the intersection of SE Powell Blvd and SE 26th Ave. For some who witnessed the event or responded to the event, the response to the trauma may take time to resolve. As I shared with students and staff on Wednesday of last week, some expected responses to any event of impact in a person’s life might include loss of appetite, being more irritable or grumpy, having trouble sleeping or sleeping too much, or avoiding friends or enjoyable activities. Some of this is normal for a short period of time, but if it is impacting your student’s life functioning, please reach out to our counseling staff or any administrator so that we can help your student access the support they need.

  • Principal's Update 9/22

    Dear Cleveland Families,

    It was a pleasure seeing you at Back to School Night. It has been three years since we were able to hold this event in person. I hope you were able to connect to the teachers that support your student and that you learned more about our academic program. 
    I want to share some updates with you as we are finishing the first month of school.

    Progress Reports

    Next week is the end of our first progress report period. This first report falls half way through the first quarter. With this progress report, teachers are letting you know if your student is not on track to earn a C or better at the quarter. We are early in the school year, and we want students to develop those academic habits that will help them achieve the learning standards in their classes. Please encourage your student to reach out to their teachers when they need support. We have a variety of tutoring resources available, and the FLEX period is designed so that students can have another opportunity during the school day to interact with their teachers. Our academic calendar includes when we have FLEX periods, and next week we will have Flex periods on Wednesday and Thursday.

    Friday, September 23-No School

    There is no school tomorrow for students across PPS. This day is a professional learning day for teachers. It is also a non-work day for our support staff. We will have two more of these days this school year, and they are marked on our school calendar. 

    Fall Sports

    We are about half way through our fall season with over 402 students participating in athletics. Our cross country and football teams are growing by leaps and bounds. Our soccer teams will be finishing up non-league games this week and then they will be vying for the PIL title in league play. Volleyball is pursuing an aggressive schedule with tournament and league games. Here is the varsity schedule for the next couple of days. You can access the athletic schedule from our website under athletics. Come out and support our Warriors!

    Thursday, September 22:

    Volleyball at Jefferson HS at 7:00 PM

    Girls Soccer at Delta Park vs. Central Catholic at 6:30 PM

    Boys Soccer at the Cleveland Stadium vs. Hood River at 7:00 PM

    Friday, September 23:

    Football at the Cleveland Stadium vs. Roosevelt at 7:00 PM

    Clubs and Activities

    Athletics is one way for your student to be involved at Cleveland. We also have a rich array of student clubs and student racial affinity groups. If you were here at Back to School Night, you had the opportunity to meet some of the student leaders from the racial affinity groups. Their meeting times are posted around the school. The club fair next Wednesday, September 28, during the FLEX period is an opportunity for your student to learn about the clubs we have and to become involved. Please encourage your student to attend and ask them about the clubs they would like to join.

Students need to check StudentVue for their current schedule as we have been balancing classes and making some schedule changes. The schedule in StudentVue will always be the most up to date. Counselors will continue to work on schedule corrections for students who may be missing a class or are in the wrong level of a class. After the first week of school, counselors will have a process to meet with students who wish to make schedule changes for other reasons. Students must follow their schedule in StudentVue even if they think they will be getting a schedule change.

    Tuesday and Wednesday of next week will be hot. Our school is not air-conditioned. Windows will be open and most rooms have fans. I would encourage students to bring water bottles that they can refill at school. We have five gallon water jugs throughout the school to use until our water fountains are operational. Our new water fountains have been installed but will not be operable until after the contractors test them. They will be marked as such until they are ready to use. 

    We cannot wait to see all of our students next week!

  • Welcome Back Message from Principal Wadkins

    Dear Cleveland Community!

    We are so excited to welcome students to the 2022-23 school year. Our custodians have been working non-stop to make our classrooms and hallways shine. Kudos to Rob Ryan and the fantastic custodial crew for all of their hard work. I am happy to be returning with my wonderful administrative team for another year of learning together. While the pandemic is still part of our reality, we look forward to having a school year that allows many opportunities for us to come together to celebrate traditions and build new ones as we work to realize our vision of an inclusive school where students are empowered, inspired and honored.
