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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-916-5747 if you would like additional information.

Marissa Troeschel showed a promo for a television program to her Kelly Elementary School students without telling them what it was. “I just starting playing it, and they’re like, ‘Wait! Wait! Wait! Is that you?’”
The Portland Interscholastic League will stage two major basketball events in the next two months that will celebrate a sport that the league excels in, but also ideals that are so important to our students and athletes.
