The teachers really care about their students succeeding. The advanced classes are challenging without being overwhelming because the teachers really push their availability to help whenever needed. I wish that their were maybe more AP classes offered.

Our school is a great place when you see all of the amazing potential leaders! We aren't an extremely diverse groups here at PORTA, but there isn't a problem with that. Teachers want what bis truly best for you, so if you are struggling there is always help. There is only a few things that could be fixed at our school to make it a better place. One thing would be reinforcement of our dress code, it isn't followed really at all, also I think that we should maybe have purified water fountains or, be able to carry water around with us. We also could offer more options for classes, for example we only offer Spanish as a foreign language. Other than this few things that could be changed around a bit, our school is pretty amazing! :)
For a small town school Porta High School offers a nice selection of classes. Students can pursue agricultural and industrial classes, or aim for the more difficult AP courses( but there is opportunity to do both).
