Mrs. Paige Kirwin-Clair

Welcome to Portsmouth High School! 

In my role as Associate Principal of Portsmouth High School, I have the honor of working with our students, teachers, parents and community members to ensure all Portsmouth High graduates have the foundation, skills, and knowledge to be college and career ready.

I pride myself on being an educational leader who promotes the success of all students by advocating, nurturing and sustaining a school culture and instructional program conducive to student learning and staff professional development.

Through modeling and teaching explicit restorative tools, I will continue to work toward building social capital and achieve social discipline through participatory learning and decision making.
