Less than average, but not bad. Other, smaller schools in the area may offer a more specialized experience.

Most of the teachers are excellent, the principal is a good leader and is fair to the kids, the privilages that come with going to the school are fantastic, and switching to this school from Elida schools was the best decision I have ever made.

I also went to this school, as well I have graduated one child from PHS and have another in her Junior year. The entire Portales Public School System is overrun with favioratetism, preferencial treatment, and graft. The System is all about the System. We have not in 20 years had a sizable increese in class size yet we now have 2 principals at every school who rake in around $90k as well as 2 secetarys who WILL NOT take messages, deliver items to classrooms or anything else besides sit behind the desk and violate childrens HEPA rights. If you have a child that needs any help at all getting thru school this is not the district for you. I had a daughter who graduated at 16 with a 3.75, she did'nt need any help. We spend our IDEA money on 90k football buses around here, thats the Portales way. I picked the one star because there was'nt a negitive star choice. If you have special needs children do NOT come here, if you live here and your child is in need of special services call the state Public Education Department they have a Special Education department and they help.
