The Division is approximately 1,500 square kilometers in size, and has about 3,300 students in Kindergarten to Grade 12. The Division also provides teachers and programs to schools on 10 area Hutterite colonies.

The PURPOSE of The Portage la Prairie School Division is:

The MISSION of The Portage la Prairie School Division is:
To recognize the individual needs and potential of our students and to provide these students with the opportunity to undertake schooling experiences that will contribute to the development of their full potential. Schooling experiences will give consideration to the future demands that will be placed upon society by our rapidly changing world.
