    My child transitioned this year to the lower school from another local private school and couldn’t be happier! The teachers are engaged, enthusiastic and caring and genuinely seem to enjoy what they are doing. My child is excited for each day and can’t wait to share what she’s learned at pick up in the afternoon. Teachers communicate what is going on in the classroom and frequently reach out with feedback on my child’s experiences at school. The headmaster seems to be beloved by faculty and parents and appears committed to growing the community with thoughtfulness and care. He is accessible and present in the community. This place is truly special! I highly recommend Portledge

    Portledge is an absolutely wonderful school. The academics are strong and the social environment is even better. Academically, Portledge offers competitive programs like AP and IB. Although relatively new, the IB program is great, and really prepares the student for college-level studying and thinking. Socially, everyone finds their place at Portledge. It is a school that has something for everyone. The school is committed to students having a great education and experience. The most helpful aspect is the college counseling. All of the college counselors work tirelessly to help students get into their dream schools.
    Portledge offers a student to find themselves and excel. From academics, to sports, to the arts, Portledge has it all. Most importantly, the atmosphere and focusing on the student making the most of discovery and acceptance makes Portledge the perfect school no matter what your passion is, but also helps you discover your passion.
