The Parkrose School District provides a premier education that unlocks the potential in each student.
Parkrose High School is the comprehensive high school in the Parkrose School District. With an enrollment of nearly one thousand students in grades 9 - 12, the Broncos compete in the Northwest Oregon Conference (NWOC). Parkrose's rich diversity encompasses growing communities of Asian Pacific Islanders, Eastern Europeans, Latin-Americans, and African Americans. There are 40 languages spoken at PHS with 130 English Language Learners (ELLs). Because of their family financial situations, more than 50% of students qualify to participate in the federal free or reduced cost school lunch program.
