Welcome to Blackhawk Country

The members of the Port Edwards Public School Community believe that we offer a unique and competitive educational opportunity. Nestled along the Wisconsin River our village and surrounding townships offer a family friendly atmosphere. We serve our youth and residents through a beautiful park system, intercity bike trails, and a community YMCA.

This small suburban school district has a dedicated staff and an open flexible attitude toward instructional innovation. These qualities are key and allow us to address the academic and social needs of every student in an academy-like atmosphere.

District News

Greeting Blackhawk Fans:

 We are excited to announce that we have already begun to replace our previously scheduled 11-player games  with 8-player football games.  JEHS will start its 8-player football season with a game on Friday, August 18, 2017 at Phillips High School.  Though the Blackhawk Football Team faces some adversity and challenges in moving from 11-player football to 8-player football, there are several opportunities available for our students this year in football.  We will announce more news in the coming days with respect to our football schedule.  To recap, we have cancelled our CWC season and will take forfeits on those games, but we are moving ahead with the transition to the future of our program.  The athletes and coaches are excited to have an opportunity to keep football alive at JEHS.
Good Luck Blackhawk Football Team!
