This school has little diversity, no school spirit, teachers are very obnoxious, students are horrible out of about 445 students, athletics are not that great, cafeteria food is inedible, do not watch the special education students very well as they tend to wander the halls, teachers do not care about students, classwork is basic, throw anyone in AP, DE, IB, Honors classes even if they have made "F's" throughout the majority of their high school career, I could not even take college course classes while maintaining an 3.5 gpa average and above because the principal felt that I will not succeed in those types of classes but yet he puts children in those classes that are incapable of maintaining the type of gpa grade point average that I've had, make the students feel less of themselves, dumb, ridicule students about their looks or appearances, cuss out the students on a daily basis, & gossips about students to other students & faculty members.

I loved my school. This is my hometown school so it was easy to go and see familiar faces everyday. No one loves school work, but I can honestly say it wasn't hard throughout the 4 years I attended. I ended my high school career on a good note, and graduation day was the most memorable moment of it all!
Port Allen High will always be in my favorite memories. All of the faculty and staff are exceptionally caring and always helpful. The students feel motivated to come to school and the principal, James Jackson, is one of the most inspiring people. He lights up everyone's morning and helps create the perfect learning environment for the students. All of the students are friendly and welcoming.
