With more than 49,000 students in 79 schools, we are the largest school district in the state and one of the largest school districts in the Pacific Northwest.

We offer a wide array of programs, including language immersion, fine arts, International Baccalaureate programs, athletics, technical, and health specialties. PPS students also attend the Head Start Early Childhood Education program, 10 community-based programs, 8 charter schools, 4 alternative programs and 10 special services programs.

Our City
Portland, Oregon, has often been called the big city with the small town feel. Nestled between the beautiful Coast Range on the west and the spectacular Cascade Range on the east, Portland sits at the junction of the Columbia and Willamette rivers. From downtown Portland, it’s just a an hour-and-a-half drive to the scenic Oregon coast or to Mt. Hood and some of the best skiing in the country, a half-hour to the peaceful vineyards and farms of the fertile Willamette Valley.
The District is focused on eliminating systemic racism and its impact on student learning.
