Jumpstart Into High School

Message From the Principal

  • Greetings Port Washington High School Students, Parents and community members:

    We are having an outstanding school year at PWHS.  Our students have achieved many great accomplishments in the classroom, athletic field and in activities.  Our Staff is truly world class, focused on helping each student reach their greatest potential.  In the most recent School Report Card from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, Port Washington High School was rated as “Exceeds Expectations” and our ACT composite for the class of 2016 puts PWHS in the top 15% of all high schools in the state of Wisconsin.

    Please take some time to look through our web page to learn more about the amazing things happening at PWHS.  At this time, we are making plans to move into our new academic wing on June 1st.  The new academic wing provides our students and staff with state of the art classrooms and resources.  Next school year, construction will begin on our new athletic and music facilities.  It is truly a great time to be a Pirate!
