Bell Schedule

The Portola High School Bell Schedule is unique in that it is a mixture of an eight- period, alternating block schedule with one day per week in which all periods meet for an abbreviated time. Within the bell schedule, there is designated time for teacher collaboration (professional development and staff meetings included), Office Hours (a time for students to receive extra support two times per week), and Advisement (a time for each teacher to meet with 25 students twice a week in a non-academic yet structured setting). The schedule has been purposefully designed to give students flexibility and options in selecting their courses, as well as fewer classes each school night to focus on for study.
