Porter Ridge High School is an excellent school. The teachers are friendly,polite and make learning fun. The administration is caring, involved and liked by all.
Sports programs are great, offering a wide variety of options.
I have enjoyed my time at PRHS as well as the entire PR campus as I have been a student starting at the elementary school entering as a kindergartner the first year it opened .
I would highly recommend Porter Ridge to any family interested in moving into this area .
Review Porter Ridge High School
Overall, I've been blessed to be at this school. Although it is overcrowded and has some faults, it's one of the best schools in the counties. It is full of bright, creative, and socially active students that care about others and the matters of this world. We have great teachers and administration overall that care about their students and want the best for them. I do not lack in opportunities at this school.
Porter Ridge High School is a place where the students are put first. Everything is carefully taken into consideration regarding education, and what is best for the students. It is a place where you are challenged to reach your full potential while enjoying your high school years. There is not anything I would change about the school. It exceeds all high school requirements.
