Recommended School Supplies

If a student prefers to use their own supplies rather than the free supplies offered by the school, families can use the following as a guideline for purchasing personal supplies. It is recommended that students use a system to organize their schoolwork. This system could be colored file folders or a large three-ring binder (3" preferred) capable of holding paper, notes, corrected assignments, and the Agenda. It is also recommended, but not required, that students have the following supplies:

  • an adequate supply of lined paper;
  • at least five divider pages for organizing the binder into sections by subject or at least one folder for each class;
  • a calculator;
  • a zip-pocket for carrying pens, pencils, erasers or flash drives;
  • at least three pencils, two pens, and one highlighter;
  • headphones;
  • a ruler with both inch and centimeter measurements; and
  • a backpack to carry all materials.
  • a combination lock for PE

This list is only a list of suggestions. De Portola students will be given the supplies necessary to learn for free.
