Welcome to West Portal Elementary School! We hope your family will soon feel at home here.

Our school is known for its history of excellence. Our teachers and staff are dedicated, experienced, and capable educators. We boast a strong and diverse community supporting almost 600 students in the General Education and Cantonese Language Immersion Programs.

We are also proud that our unified Parents Club serves the entire school population. All parents and guardians are considered members of the Parents' Club as soon as their child enrolls at West Portal. The Parents Club supports many in-school programs, technology upgrades, and free events for our school community. 


As a first step toward joining our community, we encourage you to sign up for our electronic newsletters and visiting the Community Website. Please check with your child's teacher on how to sign up for school communications and the password to access the Community Website. By signing up, you'll get weekly messages from the school, our newsletter "The Panther Press", and other important messages.  

We view our parents as our most valuable resource and we always need volunteer help. Please consider volunteering in the classroom or at a community event. It's a great way to get to know our school better.

We're looking forward to meeting you!

The West Portal Parents Club
