Going to Port Washington High School has been a great experience for me, especially with the positive environment you're surrounded by. The clubs and activities that you can take part here are endless. Although the sports here are fun to participate in, don't expect it to be the best in the state. On the contrary, that arts program here is a one of a kind, and probably the best in the state! Our acapella group has gone to nationals, vocalists and instrumentalists have won state, and the international/domestic trips we take as a choir and band are amazing! Overall, the school culture here is supportive and involved (and they're renovating the school which is awesome!).

The things I liked about Port Washington High School, were the administration and the staff. I thought that I earned a good education there and would encourage other High Schoolers to attend their as well!
My time at Port Washington High School allowed me the opportunity to be successful in the future. Although the sports facilities and food options were not of highest regard, the school has recently been completely renovated and exceeds all expectations. It's faculty genuinely cares about the student body and the level of academic standards is second to none.
