Portsmouth High School

Facilities Bond


The Portsmouth School Department is moving forward with a series of health and safety improvements to all four school facilities, totaling $21.44 million.

The projects are financed by bonds that were overwhelmingly approved by the residents of Portsmouth (63%) in a November 2021 referendum vote.

In December 2021, the State approved the district’s application for reimbursement for up to 40% of the total cost of the projects (about $8.6 million) through the Rhode Island School Construction Program.

Read the press release about State approval of the projects (December 17, 2021).
