Overall my 4 years at this high school were great. The teachers truly care about their students success. Sports were great, specially football which the games received support from everyone in town, students and residents alike. The school adopted the SUPA( Syracuse University Project Advance) program, which allows students to take college courses while in high school. This program allowed me and my peers to enter college with 2nd year status.

I liked Port Jevis High School because they always had a caring staff. Especially the nurse whom cared and watched over my son who is Type 1 when needed. Never complained. She is a great person whom taught my son to hold you head up high, fight and never give up.
The downrun of Port Jervis High School is the behavior in some coaching with sports. Not teaching kids the correct way they should be learning. Setting an example. Getting every player to be their best if they are playing for the school team and preparing them for college or the real world mentally and physically. It seem like who you know or just a one man show. I love to see changes there and so would several other parents. Otherwise, Port is a great school and my kids love it there and have no problems
My overall experience at Port Jervis high school was fantastic. One of my favorite experiences at this high school were the food drives, toys for tots, DECA fundraisers and my trip to the culinary institute of america. This high schools desire to make every student feel important, comfortable and prosper to succeed goes farther than most schools. Coming from a high school in New York City (Grover Cleveland High School) where I was just another person walking around the school, unnoticed, Port Jervis High School went above and beyond for me being a transfer student. If I could do my high school years over again, I most definitely would.
