Check these requirements first:

·         Before doing anything else, students new to Portland Public Schools must be processed by the Enrollment and Transfer Office, (503) 916-3205. If the student is accepted into PPS, the student may then apply to Alliance HS @ Benson per the checklist below.

·         Special Education students are always accepted into our program if we have supports that will legally meet the student's written IEP. Before we admit students to Alliance HS @ Benson, students with IEPs must have an IEP meeting with a SPED representative from Alliance @ Benson present to determine if our school is an appropriate educational program.
