In the years I have attended Portola High School, I have seen many improvements to your classrooms and buildings. For example, the school remodeled an old classroom. New floors, whiteboards, and desktops were installed. Classrooms got new desks, tables, whiteboards and chairs. The school also bought several sets of laptops for student use and new computers for the library. Portola High School is a close community where everyone knows each other and gets along. My experience at Portola High School has been very good and I will always appreciate the teachers and staff because they really care about their students well-being and safety.

I enjoyed the intimacy of the small school setting and was impressed with the amount of classes available. The teachers are dedicated to the students and the atmosphere feels supportive
Portola High had quite a bit to offer in terms of student-teacher relationships. There was always someone available to speak with and to guide students in the right direction.
