  • Multiple Pathways To Graduation.....

    Where EVERY student is

    Welcome, Wanted, and Worthy.


    A central component of the mission of Portland Public Schools is to “support all students in achieving their very highest educational and personal potential.”

    The Multiple Pathways to Graduation Mission is to “provide educational options for all youth that empower, engage, and prepare them for college, work training, and global citizenship while serving as a vanguard for systemic educational change.” The district is committed to providing an appropriate learning environment for all students.

    Alternative education options can be either district operated or community based. These options are developed to meet the needs of a specific student population. Alternative education options can be either a program of a school or an independent school. To meet student’s needs, alternative education options generally offer something different from or in addition to the regular curriculum and may offer something different from regular school hours.
