West Portland High School is the most common school area in West Portland. Many students attend there for education and learning purposes. Seen from Shake Your Booty, the school was still there in 1978 so the school has a long history. The school was built around in 1800's or such. Shelby, Cyd, Naldo & Barry attend this school and do many activities. The girls have been time traveling here more than any other location. Only seen on screen.
