Miss Porters is beyond amazing. The BEST all-girls institution. I am so grateful to be here, this school has taught me so much. The campus is relatively small compared to other renown boarding schools; therefore, it is more homey and comforting for students. In 2017, Miss Porter’s launched the T.I. E (technology, innovation, entrepreneurship) program. This program is excellent as it enables students to branch out in the STEM field on a more enhanced level. Students learn how to code, start a business, create 3D designs, and work with real-world situations.

Miss Porter's is a wonderful institution and I am grateful for all of my experiences there. The teachers and other academic resources are phenomenal, most teachers make you feel like you always feel like you have someone looking out for you, someone cheering you on and rooting for your success.
The academic departments are exceptional, especially the T.I.E. (technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship) program. The InterMission term proves itself as a reflection of the values of Miss Porter's school, emerging students in three weeks of real-world experience that challenges their perspectives.
The sense of community is so strong already. Everyone is welcome, and Porter's educates students on all different backgrounds. There are no cliques...people are friendly with each other, and bonds were created so much faster than in my middle school. The faculty, staff, administration, and house directors are incredible. They kept us so busy in the first weeks that I didn't even have time to think about being homesick. The single-sex environment is a place for all girls to thrive; I have not experienced judgment and can focus completely on my work, sports, and friendships.
