One of the chief goals of the Washington-Nile School District is to develop the talents of each student to the fullest extent possible. West offers a variety of subjects and we encourage students to challenge themselves and make the most of the possibilities offered at Portsmouth West High School. 

The information provided in this REGISTRATION GUIDE  has been prepared to assist students in choosing their course of study in high school. It is provided so that they may study it carefully and make choices that will have a lasting effect upon their lives. Parents are also encouraged to consult with their child(ren), the guidance counselors and other members of the school staff about this process.


The Portsmouth West Key Club is selling puzzle pieces for $1 during your child’s lunch the week of March 27.


Your child will be able to put their name on a puzzle piece that will be displayed in the cafeteria.

All proceeds go toward supporting students with Autism in our district.

Thank you for your support!
