Overall,I would say that the two years I have being at portrichmond, i have seen it blossom, and it’s students have started clubs to bring the school together. In fempower, their discussion as women’s rights and humanitarian rights. In helping hand, a new club, students are receiving help or aid has to what they can do to help their community. During the months of November and December, port hosts many community events the year starts of with the Breast cancer and Autism walk. Port hosts a forest dinner, were foster families come in two the school and they are served food and marching band plays music, but the members of the hub, a mentoring program, bring toys and they hand out gifts to the kids. At port I have experienced what a true community school feels like. The mission of Port Richmond is to provide all of its students with individualized challenges, opportunities, and resources to become lifelong learners and productive responsible citizens.

Port Richmond high school is a very good and safe school. I like the diversity and amount of different sport and clubs available at this school. The teachers are very good and care about the students. The academics are very good if you are in either the collegiate or gateway honors programs. There are many honors/ap classes to take as a honors student. Additionally, this school has a lot of school spirurt and is very invested in school social events such at dances and spirit weeks.
Port Richmond high school was filled with amazing opportunities for students. They never left a student behind, and helped make students feel welcome. They increased levels of creativity and an enriched learned environment. Administrators had a relationship with students, allowing the students to feel welcomed and want to continue attending school. The school had many different classes so students can follow their interest, they had a culinary program, tv and media, honors etc. This school helped me develop into the person I am today and I'm grateful to have attended this school.
