My overall experience at Porter Early College High School was phenomenal. The teachers go above and beyond for their students. The staff is also very friendly when it comes to advice, help, and when a student needs a good laugh. I will honestly miss this campus when I graduate. The counselor's are great help when it comes to figuring out our future, what major we decide to take, and without them , I would probably be doing everything last minute. As a junior , I plan to make this upcoming school year the best one yet! Once a cowboy, always a cowboy.

My experience attending Porter Early College High School was fantastic everything about it made it ideal. The administrators were super nice and helpful, also the principal Mrs.Solis made a big change during my high school years! The school with the biggest spirit everyone was super nice and friendly, the teachers were the best and caring thanks to them i'm responsible and educated because they push you to do better. Sports wise was a great experience too the coaches were awesome! Porter Early College high school felt like a second home to me.
My experience at Porter Early College High School so far has been an amazing journey. This school is full of outstanding students who always strive to do their best in order to achieve their goals. We all like having so much fun, & I believe that’s the most essential quality in the community. We know how to be extroverts & pass the happiness around as well as intelligence. Here at Porter, we love to grant assistance to students who need it. If someone is having trouble understanding something academic-wise, we never fail to help anyone. This is also one of the qualities that I love about my school. We’re a very humble & committed family that achieves goals. I really wouldn’t change anything about this high school; it’s such a welcoming & loving place to study & grow as an individual.
