Portage provides their students with great opportunities to excel. I have two young children who are in the Portage school system, and I have experienced nothing but great things thus far.

I like living in Portage Township! It is an up and coming area. There are many great opportunities for education and employment. A variety of affordable housing options. Portage Township is an excellent community family and growth.
I would like to change the school system. We have gotten rid of our police officers within all schools and they are banned off of the High Schools premises. I, and along with many others, do not feel safe within my school.
