  • Dear Alliance Students and Families,


    Thank you for looking up our web page!  We are excited to share information with you about our two-campus school and its culture.


    Alliance is an in-district alternative high school with unique bell schedules, calendars, and course offerings.  Our staff is dedicated to supporting students to graduate from high school and transition to next-steps.  One that is not alternative about Alliance is our diploma.  Students at Alliance earn the same diploma as all PPS comprehensive high schools and have opportunities to earn dual credit in four areas of the school.


    What is unique and feels "alternative" to our studnets is smaller class sizes, a robust advisory program, institutionalized efforts to develop a caring and responsive school community, community partnerships that support our students, and flexibility to help studnets make school work for them.


    This year, Alliance was recongnized as one of the 50 best high schools in Oregon and we know that this honor relflects our excellent staff and unique studnet body.  We are also delighted to have been chosen as one of the three PPS schools to host a group of state senators and representatives visiting our district and as one of the two PPS schools visited by a school district from Colorado.


    Please contact me directly at lfastbuf@pps.net or 503-916-5747 if you would like additional information.


    With Respect,

    Lorna Fast Buffalo Horse, Principal

    Dear PPS Families and Staff,

    After much urgent collaboration and planning, today leadership from Portland Public Schools and the Portland Association of Teachers shared with all of our PPS educators the outline for how teachers will begin working online next week. This outline represents our upcoming efforts to most effectively phase in supports for our students and teachers during the extended closure of our schools. We appreciate your patience while we, like other school districts, adapt our instructional delivery model virtually overnight. Next week we will share with you a detailed, multi-week plan for home-based learning for your students. Please stay tuned for that.
