Port A is an amazing school. the small school environment allows teachers to really connect and help students. The entire community backs the school and supports the students. I was very success at this school and most of the credit has to go to the environment I received my education in. Playing Lady Marlin basketball in the "Tank" was an unforgettable experience. I will never forget the crowd and my coaches.

This school is a very small school but it is good in that the teachers have smaller classes and are able to help students when needed. Because it is so small, it lacks the academic options that larger schools has as well as athletics. Overall, i really have enjoyed by time at Port Aransas and hope that when it's time to have my own children, they have a school like this to go to and learn and grow.
This is a school that I had the great pleasure of attending, where all the members of the faculty and staff treated each other and their students with kindness and respect. Due to its small size, students were able to get the attention and help when they needed it. The student body excelled in both academics and athletics thanks to the support and guidance of their teachers.
