Why porter is a school of excellence

Porter traditional school is an amazing school, it offers advanced studies to any students interested.

Our school has won school of excellence 8 years in a row for our consistant amazing test scores. At porter you will have many academic advanrages which can help you on the long run.


At porter we have many star qualitities to keep each student on track. These star qualities include courtousey, compassion, responsibility,respect,honesty, perserverance, cooperation, patience, courage, and the best one, a sense of humor! following our star qualitites, every morning, we say the pledge of allegance, followed by the porter creed. Every day at school, we take time out of our day for stars and stripes, in other words silently reading for us. Another tradition done at porter is our uniforms. We use this tradition so that everyone at our school knows that they are equal. Our last, and maybe most important is the "give me five" this is used when a class is too quiet and a teacher needs to calm them down
