Welcome to Portsmouth High School! We are glad you are here, and the New Patriots Club wants to help make your transition as easy as possible.

    If you have questions like…

    “How do I find my classes?” “Who will I sit with at lunch?”

    “How do I get involved in sports and clubs?”

    …New Patriots is the right place to start!

    The New Patriots Club is designed for students who are from military families, international, local, exchange students, transitioning from other public schools, private schools, home schooled – you name it! Our current members already live in Portsmouth and are excited to meet you and answer any questions you may have about your new area.
