Advisor: Mr. Arsenault
The Student Council at Portsmouth High School is comprised of forty spirited, dynamic, and enthusiastic students. In order for students to serve as Council members they must:
- Be in good academic standing
- Have the endorsement of three faculty members, the class advisor and parent permission
- Sign, along with their parent/guardian, the Portsmouth Extracurricular Activity Agreement
- Be elected by their peers during election week
Each class has 10 seats on the Council; 4 of which are the elected president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer. The Student Council and its members are the “center” of the student extra-curricular activity program. It is the policy of PHS that all planned activities involving school related clubs be brought before the Council for approval and scheduling. These opportunities serve to broaden the students’ development of leadership skills and promote effective communication skills.
