The Student News Site of East Lansing High School



Portrait is East Lansing High School’s official student-run online news source. Portrait publishes on a weekly schedule and works closely with the print publication of the same name, which publishes on a monthly cycle when school is in-session. The two publications share an editorial voice, but publish aligned, yet different, content.

In addition to the site, Portrait also shares content through Instagram, which can be found at
