Worst school ever. Half of me thinks this school should be investigated for cheating but if that were true I dont know why they never reach their AYP. We moved my son to another Newton Co. school where they did testing to see where he was academically. At Porterdale he scored slightly above his grade ...  Read more

I love this school. The teachers seem to have a keen interest in the children's academic accomplishments. My child attends this school and is in Ms. Cody's Special Needs Class. She is a great teacher and works hard to love and see the children as her own and goes the extra mile to ensure they meet ...  Read more

I must say that I have been less than impressed by the emphasis on education at Porterdale. The focus seems to be more on wearing the uniform than on ensuring that the best learning takes place. Also, there seems to be a constant barrage of fundraisers.

As a new resident of Newton County, I did not have much to go by except how a friend characterized this school. I am so very sorry that I didn't do more research before putting my son in this school. I felt funny from day 2 that my son was at a bad school, but I tried to change that perspective. As ...  Read more

Overall I am satisfied with Porterdale Elementary. I have worked with several of the teachers, and find they are dedicated to their profession and the children. I am disappointed in the administration and the 'politics' though. There is also lack of parental involvement.

My daughter attended kindergarten at Porterdale and she loved the school and her teachers. Ms.Blankenship and Ms.Bell are wonderful with kids. The only 2 things I would complain about is parent participation and the fact that there is not P.E for kindergarten students.

I have two grandsons presently attending Porterdale. My grandson's are in 1st grade. Their teachers last year was great. The boys did not attend pre-school, but developed alot in kindergarden school. This year posed a challenge, one started having tantrums in class when preparing for the CRCT test. ...  Read more

I have mixed feelings about Porterdale. Although it is not the worst school in Newton County, it is far from the best. If your child does not fit into the 'box', he or she may have a problem at this school. I am not happy with the level of work or support from the staff. My child will not be returning ...  Read more
