Portsmouth Junior/Senior High School Reviews
I loved most of my teachers. Teachers like Mrs.Horn, Mrs. Bowling, Mrs.Keating, Mrs.Deacon, and so many others have been there for me and prepared me for the future. They’ve answered every question I had the best that could and tried their very best to prepare me for college: including encouragement for admissions. Teachers made me laugh and feel comfortable in the classroom but also pushed me to do the best that I can; people like Mr. Hartman, Mr. Fannon, and Mr. Lavender( who ironically hates lavender because he is allergic.) however while there were amazing teachers the administration was not very helpful. There were few exceptions to this case, but I am not proud of those people who misrepresent the amazing teachers that work there.
I have attended Portsmouth City Schools my entire life. I have never been denied an opportunity because of my skin color or any of my differences. Portsmouth offers many great sports programs, clubs and after school activities, so there is always something to do. Our motto at Portsmouth City Schools is " You belong here" and I firmly support it. Portsmouth has done a great job of making all students feel like they belong and we are not only a school, but a family. I'm extremely grateful for my soon to be alma mater and I am forever proud to be a Trojan.
During my years at Portsmouth city Schools, I met many life long friends, and was always welcomed by the students and staff. Over the years, I encountered several loving teachers who valued my education, and also made sure we all were doing okay mentally and that everything was good at home. We were always encouraged to challenge ourselves, to be the best we could be, and to change the stereotypes that Portsmouth is full of trouble makers with a trash education. The only thing I would change, is that the school needs to let the students be more involved. Let them plan spirit week, hold pep rally’s before big games, do fun fundraisers such as dodgeball between students and teachers. If you let them be involved and have fun at the same time, they’re going to be excited to come to school and learn.
