Welcome to the SPSD website. We hope you find our website provides you the information you need to be informed about our eight schools and our district. We welcome your feedback and suggestions.

Our district mission, "Enriching Lives Through Quality Learning For All," is the cornerstone of all of our work. To access our Comprehensive Education Plan which outlines our District Goals and ongoing school improvement work, please follow the links.

An important component of our district focus continues to be our facilities. Thanks to a supportive community, all five of our district's elementary schools provide students with equitable learning spaces throughout the district. A School Board appointed Secondary School Facilities Committee has been working for six years to study and plan for renovation or reconstruction of our middle school. Middle School plans are being developed through the State Department of Education's Priority School application process.

As a school department we are proud of our progress toward improving student achievement and value our community partnerships toward supporting the youth of South Portland. Please explore our district and school website for more information.

Dear members of the South Portland school community. It has recently come to our attention that a website located at (www.southportlandredriots[dot]com) has been created that uses the School Department’s name and mascot to, among other things, attempt to convince users to pay to sponsor certain elements of the site, purchase “Red Riot” apparel, and to use something called “Red Riotbucks” and “Red Riotmail.” Please be aware that this website is not affiliated with the South Portland School Department in any way.

Please find current bus runs here:


The South Portland Economic Development Committee (EDC) Needs Your Help
South Portland Residents are invited to complete a survey at:

The EDC is made up of volunteer residents and owners/managers of South Portland businesses tasked with advising the city government.

South Portland has not had a comprehensive economic plan since 1977. The EDC is developing a new plan to help the city increase employment, increase the tax base (helping school funding) and identify specific ways to help South Portland prosper and grow.
