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 email@example.com or 503-916-5747 if you would like additional information.

The new mascot and nickname for Franklin High School will be Lightning. The process to determine a new identity for the school was finalized Tuesday, when the Portland Public Schools Board of Education unanimously approved Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero’s recommendation.
Dear PPS Community,
We have come to the end of what has been an ambitious and groundbreaking school year at the Portland Public Schools. I want to offer my heartfelt thanks to our amazing students, their supportive families, our dedicated teachers, hardworking support staff and dynamic school and district leaders who made it all work.
This summer promises to be the biggest of the PPS bond program so far. School modernization and improvement projects will touch almost every school over the coming months with security upgrades, new roofs, asbestos remediation, new fire alarms, ADA improvements and a seismic retrofit in the works.
