We became a school in which students, parents, faculty and the community helped to build and maintain the GRANT SPIRIT, which we enjoy today.Ulysses Simpson Grant High School was the School Boards unanimous selection for the name of Portlands eighth high school after George E. Sandy, Commander of a local V.F.W. Post, suggested it. Since that time Grant Generals have headed the city and the state in excellence in academics, athletics, and school participation.W. T. Fletcher, Grants first principal, is credited with founding the traditions of friendliness, cooperation, and understanding. He reminded everyone, We are all here learning to live together. The murals in our auditorium in memory of Mr. Fletcher interpret the ideals of education and depict chains of young people, hand in hand, climbing, step by step toward manhood and womanhood.To accomplish those ideals Grant High School has consistently maintained a strong faculty, which has taught and inspired students to achieve scholastic distinction and honor. Our program of studies is comprehensive, and we have been leaders for more than one-half century in preparing students, both academically and vocationally, for the adult world.Student participation beyond the classroom also has been a Grant tradition. Through athletics, performing arts, student government, clubs, publication staffs and other activities, Grant Generals have prepared to become talented, contributing citizens and leaders in government and business.Carrying on the Grant tradition brings with it responsibility as well as pride. Todays student is challenged to achieve to his or her limit. There is an ever-increasing arena of scholastic opportunities for the student who attends Grant including traditional academic subjects, performing and visual arts, technology, and business education in preparation for the world of work as well as college.
