Ceremony will celebrate re-opening of Grant High School
After two years of construction and students relocating to another campus, Grant High School re-opened on Aug. 28. Thanks to the generosity of Portland voters who passed the 2012 School Building Improvement Bond, Portland Public Schools was able to create a Northeast Portland high school that, while keeping parts of the historic framework of a campus first built in 1923, now offers a fully modernized campus for learning in the 21st century.
Here is who we are: one district, PPS
In this video, we explore this concept: “To find the soul of a major city like Portland, look no further than its public schools."
