By a Former Student on

My mom put me at this school because is a good school, but Porter Middle school has a bullying problem.  I have been bullied 3 times in this school year.  Bullying is a serious problem and no action has been action for them to say zero tolerance for bullying because the students who batter me are still there in my same classroom....I don't want to go school any more.

Porter Middle School is an awesome school.

By a Parent on

Very very good school, Im very confident and happy, the Reputation for academic excellence and rigori is  Highly individualized. Education with strong values and discipline, yet non-sectarian, they encourage yours  students to experience a multicultural education, and aim to enrich their worldview through targeted activities and opportunities such as international community service, and hosting international exchange students.
