Portland Public Schools (PPS) is a PreK-13 district located west of Lansing in the Ionia County ISD. The mission of Portland Public Schools, in partnership with the community, is to provide a safe learning experience so each student feels empowered to meet their full potential. Throughout the district, relationships, data, and a variety of options and opportunities are part of a personalized learning experience for all students and staff. 

We have two elementary schools, one middle school, one high school, an alternative school, a virtual school, and an adult education program. From developmental kindergarten through early college, the district is steadily increasing opportunities for the over 2,000 students enrolled.

Portland Public Schools focuses on the needs of their students, families, and community when making district, building, and classroom decisions. We have developed systems and processes to guide teaching and learning and put Capturing Kids Hearts at the center of our culture, resulting in deeper student engagement and higher academic achievement. The District is increasing options for personalizing learning on and off campus, and continues to pursue growth for all stakeholders.
