I have two children (twins) attending Portledge and in the 8th grade this year. Their needs and personalities are extremely different. One child is terribly shy and the other is highly social. The Portledge Faculty have inspired and individually challenged both of my children to excel within their academics all 9 years of attendance. They are in all advanced classes and continue to LOVE school, respect their teachers. The comradery of students in all of the grades is amazing.

Boarding school was our initial plan after 8th grade. However, due to the success we have experienced and the academic program Portledge offers (International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement) we will continue with their education through 12th grade.

Our experience has been nothing less then EXCEPTIONAL and can not imagine our children attending any where else.

We absolutely love this school! Our daughter just finished her second year there and we could not be happier. She is starting second grade in the fall. I am amazed at how warm and nurturing the school is. They make learning fun in the most creative ways. The teachers and staff are top notch. I am continually amazed at what my daughter is learning. She actually shocks me sometimes with what she knows. She loves Portledge.
Portledge is an extraordinary school and community. Our daughter has attended for the past four years and it's been a rewarding and gratifying experience for the entire family. We couldn't be happier with the culture, values and curriculum.
