Portsmouth's elementary schools are excellent; and that's about it. It goes down hill pretty quickly after that. They have 4th and 5th graders in the Middle School and that is just awful. There is a lack of extracurricular activities in this school. In addition, the teachers and staff are rather ...  Read more

My daughter had a wonderful experience at the Portsmouth Middle School. She is currently a sophmore at PHS and PMS prepared her well, both academically and behaviorially.

I have 2 children at this school and I am a teacher in Portsmouth. I find the faculty and administration to be unsupportive and uncooperative. Extra curricular activities are lacking and academic areas need to be upgraded.

As a former teacher at this school, as well as parent of a student currently at this school, I am extremely dissatisfied with the lack of leadership and uniformity within and across grades and curriculum. My child will not return to this school next year.

Portsmouth Middle School is an excellent school. The teachers are all highly qualified and put every ounce of energy into every student. The students are wonderful, respectful, and polite boys and girls. This is a great district that will enhance your child's education and abilities.

Portsmouth Middle School is a source of pride within the community. The administration and parent groups work well together to provide an effective, but fun learning environment. I attended this school in the 70's and my children attend now. Taxes are high, but well worth the quality education ...  Read more
