I went have gone to this school ever since pre-k until now. I love porter just being able to say youve been going to the same school for 10 years and counting is kind of comforting :) Porter is a big family. Just like any family we have little fights but then we only get closer and learn from our mistakes. ...  Read more

I came to this school from 2nd grade to 6th grade. The classes were not challenging AT ALL. The teachers were extremely nice but didn't really give the students the individualized attention that they needed. The teachers seemed to pick their favorites and there is not question about it. I transferred ...  Read more

I went here and felt my needs were far from met. I have documented disabilities and this school used every excuse in the book to deny me services I required to succeed. They wouldn t even acknowledge I qualified for special ed until my mom brought in a lawyer. I go to Bolton High School now and it is ...  Read more

I have removed my child from Horace Porter School because I beleive the school to be substandard. I do not agree with the type of math that is being taught, and the school needs to be run like a business and not an emotional entity. Unfortunately with the new members coming in as a result of the last ...  Read more

I currently have 3 children in Porter. One of whom has special needs. For 9 years the administration has given my child every, I mean every service we requested. We showed reasoning, literature, and examples to support our requests and that has helped. Our other two children could not be happier at ...  Read more
