    CELEBRATE GRANT'S 100TH YEAR!

    It’s time - the Grant High School Centennial celebration is here!!  U.S. Grant High School was first opened in September 1924 as the 8th high school in Portland – and is still going strong today – a great thing to celebrate!  There are going to be various events throughout the year to help celebrate, honor and of course, reminisce on the 100-year history of Grant High School!  Planning is ongoing. As new events get added you will find the information here, so be sure to check back regularly.
