Community Partners

At Portage Public Schools, we recognize the importance of fostering strong community partnerships to enhance the educational experiences and opportunities for our students. We believe that collaboration with local organizations is vital in providing comprehensive support and valuable lessons that extend beyond the core content.

Through strategic partnerships, we aim to create a network of resources and expertise that enriches our students' learning and development.
