    My daughter has been at Porter We love the school.or 5 years now. z The teachers are amazing.

  • (5 years ago)

    My child attends currently and loves going to school everyday. In fact many times my child does not want the school day to end. They are really working with my child - just as promised. Best IEP we have had so far. They are on target with addressing behavior sensory ot issues & speech and I'm really pleased.

    I am not only a parent but an employee of the school system. I have been very pleased with the faculty and staff of Porter Elementary. I hope to keep my child here throughout his elementary years.
