17 Parent Reviews for Horace W. Porter School

When my first child started at this school on 2011, I was very impressed with the staff. They loved their jobs and it showed. My child flourished here and enjoyed school. Since then, the school has gone downhill. The poaching of a significant number of kids by North Windham's magnet school has resulted ...  Read more

Was totally unimpressed with this school. The teachers are ok but the curriculum is substandard. My child's feelings were not taken into consideration and it left us feeling like we were not worth the schools time.

I transferred ...  Read more

The teachers all seem very nice and competent but I'm not impressed with the school as a whole. Almost every event I've been to seems haphazard and poorly organized. 4th grade is considered middle school at Porter so 9 and 10 year olds are thrown in with teens and your 5 year old will ride the bus with ...  Read more

I have had 3 kids go through the Porter School System. Each of my kids are very different and required different learning styles. This school has hit the mark on every level of my kids learning and developing requirements.

We moved from Windsor a few years ago, and I have to say that what most impressed me about this school was the kindness of the children and staff. My children have had no bullying issues and feel safe here. I do have some concerns but I believe my voice (and that of other parents) will be heeded and ...  Read more
