Attention PHS Students and Parents:

We will have an informational meeting about the
School Leadership Team study of the Laude System of grading
and Community Service requirement for graduation. 
These two items were part of the Strategic Plan of 2014.  

Administration and members of the PHS Leadership team
will discuss what was studied and why the team is NOT
recommending either change for PHS next year. 
Come and be part of the discussion

Thank You PHS Tech Ed Department

Thanks to the PHS Tech Ed Department, three more Trophy Case sections
 f the ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME are done!

Walk down the locker room hallway and check out
all the trophies and awards from 1920's to 2010+.

Did you know that most of the early trophies (1920-1970's)
were thrown in a room up in the press box for years?

We rescued them!

We have organized the showcase in the commons to feature
the most recent awards, State trophies + a number of "special" awards
over the years of Portage Athletics.

We have one more large showcase to finish
down the Athletic Hall of Fame hallway. 
We hope to have it completed by the fall of 2016.

Come check it out!


Congrats to our new NHS members!

2015-16 Cell Phone Policy


Please be aware of the 2015-16 Cell Phone Policy CHANGE
during the school day. Cell phones are not to be used during 
class time unless directed by the teacher for educational use.
We have found that cell phones in the classroom are very
distracting to our students and their learning.

If a cell phone is seen, it will be taken and held
 until the end of class. 

If you are in the habit of texting your child during the school day
and expect an immediate response, you should only hear from them 
between classes and/or lunchtime.

If you have an immediate need to get a message to your child,
please call the PHS Office (608-742-8545) and we will deliver
that message. 




All parents have their own individual Parent Portal account to use. 

If you need directions or setup assistance, please email

District Registrar at dyalt@portage.k12.wi.us or call 608-742-3715.

Our Infinite Campus District ID needed for the Portal has changed to QWPHJP

To change to the new ID on your device

  • log-out of the app
  • click Change District (even though you're really just changing the ID)
  • enter the new District ID (QWPHJP) and you'll be returned to the Portage mobile app


Wall of Honor

Attention PHS "Veteran" Grads (prior to 1998):

We are excited to announce the newly added plaque to the

Wall of Honor in the commons. 

Our Wall of Honor recognizes graduates

of the current PHS building 1998 to present,

who have served or are serving in the Armed Forces.

This year we dedicated a new plaque at the 2015 Veteran's Program to recognize

as many Veterans, service men and women,

who graduated from Portage High School

prior to this building opening in 1998. 

If you are one of those PHS veteran graduates,

please email Principal Kvalo,

with your full name, date of graduation and branch of service.

Spread the word. 

We'll be adding to the current plaque as we get new names.


Portage High School has 830 students this school year.  A Principal, Assistant Principal, Dean of Students, 65 professionals and paraprofessionals, serve the student body.  Portage High School also houses the district Technology Department, Athletic Department and some Business Office.

Education is a shared responsibility involving students, parents, school and the community.  Our primary goal is to create a safe school environment where all teachers can teach and every student can learn.  Working together, our students will have four years of experiences that prepare them to realize dreams for their future.
