Portage Public Schools Reviews
Overall it's one of the best school districts to be apart of in Kalamazoo County. A lot of the staff is very friendly and truly care about their students. They push you to be some of the best people you can be. The after school programs are also really fun to be apart of and the clubs ran by students are wonderful. However, they handle bullying cases not as well as they should be handled. I have seen many cases of bullying not dealt with even after it was brought up to staff. Also, they are very test and "college ready" heavy. Standardized testing has more negative outcomes than positive ones. Students shouldn't be judged by a number. They also prepare you for college but not everyone wants to go. They don't seem to understand that not everyone is willing to go and there are some other great options out there.
Had a good high school experience at Portage Central High School. There were a lot of ways to be involved through a variety of clubs, events, sports, volunteering and academic activities. Advanced classes are good for preparing students for college and offer a way to earn college credits. Most of the buildings and facilities are in the process of being rebuilt or were built recently which allows for a better experience for the students. Most teachers care about their students and want them to succeed.
I go to Portage Central High School, and I really do love it. The teaching staff is amazing and our principle takes the time to get to know and learn each and everyone of the students by name which is amazing and makes me feel so special especially when you go to the school with a near 1300 other students. The thletics at our school are really top-notch as well. the only thing I wish I could change about my school is the lack of diversity within race and culture because our demographics tend to be pretty, boring. But besides that love the school and love the people.
