A Message From Your Principal

Dear Port Jervis Learning Community,

It is with great excitement, on behalf of Port Jervis High School faculty and staff, that I welcome you to the 2021-22 school year.  Our learning community has taken on the challenges of the past 18 months and demonstrated a continued ability to be successful through our collaborative efforts.  We look forward to all the promise and possibilities of a new school year.  This teamwork will continue to guide us and move our students forward.   

As we begin the school year, student achievement remains front and center.  Through our Multi-Tiered System of Support we will identify and address learning gaps.  Interventions will be closely monitored and adjusted as needed.

Additionally, we will continue our focus on getting our students involved in our community.  Using our new online platform, “Passport for Good,” students will be able to archive their extracurricular involvement and create a portable digital portfolio that will stay with them beyond high school.

Finally, on a personal level, I am excited to join the Port Jervis High School team and support our most senior students.  I enjoyed getting to know many of them in middle school and it is an absolute privilege to work with them again as young adults.

The PJHS team is available to you as we work to create a positive educational experience.  We look forward to seeing you at our school events and collaborating with you throughout the year! 

Go Port!
