Welcome to Portage Northern High School

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences will take place on Monday November 5 and Wednesday November 7, 3:30-7:15pm in the Lower Level Commons. Parents do not sign up for time slots in advance. Simply bring your student’s schedule and all of his/her teachers will be at tables in the Commons waiting to go over your students progress and answer any questions you might have.

You might be wondering… “Since I can get up-to-date information on Skyward, why should I come to conferences?” Great question. Speaking with adults who see your student daily can provide insight on what’s behind the grades, plus other issues such as how your student is doing socially. Partnering with teachers now also opens a door for communicating with them later. That will come in handy when helping your teen plan for next semester, next year and beyond.

Yearbook + Senior Portraits

Senior photos are due October 31!  Do you need to submit a senior photo?   Looking to order your yearbook?  You can find all the details on our Yearbook page.

PN Drama Presents Les Miserables

Come see our talented students take on one of the greatest musicals of all time!

When ex-prisoner, Jean Valjean (Ben Eiler), breaks parole and agrees to care for the daughter of factory worker Fantine (Ellie Mancina), he is hunted for decades by the ruthless Inspector Javert (Max Case). Along the way, we meet young and passionate student revolutionaries Enjolras (Nico Weaver) and Marius (Jason Koch), lonely but hopeful Cosette (Rosie Coryell), scrappy street urchin Eponine (Trinity Posey) and her conniving parents Monsieur and Madame Thenardier (Jordan Bruner and Sydney Dudley). The story would not be complete without an ensemble of over 40 additional actors and children playing the intriguing array of colorful characters who encounter Valjean on his path to grace and glory.

Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France and the Parisian Rebellion of 1832, Les Miserables tells an enthralling   story  of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption.

Winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score, Les Miserables is a musical adaptation of Victor Hugo’s 1862 classic novel and remains a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit.
