The Portola High School Science Department will inspire learners to be positive change agents in the world.  We will accomplish this by implementing a culturally-relevant curriculum that encourages learners to take academic risks and structure lessons that emphasize the growth of science and engineering practices.


Our mission is to guide learners as they:

Become critical and independent thinkers

Become innovators

Persevere through challenges

Become stronger collaborators

Develop into culturally aware and responsible citizens
