No help whatsoever for children with special needs or IEP. They do not follow protocol at all! Kids are rude and unsupervised all day. I have met tons of parents that want to or have pulled their kids out because of this and bullying. Sexual conduct and clicks are out of control. These kids just run wild fail anything they want with no supervision or notice to their parents. No communication between the school and parents. You have to actually go there and chase them down and scream to get any type or response or attention from them. kids are pollution here worst school system I have ever seen

Nothing but bad things to say. Please what ever you do don't send your kids to this School . I was a student that was resource and i had a teacher that would not help me, i was bullied and made many complaints, but nothing was ever resolved. The vice principal was really rude, everyone ( students) is very clicky , everyone has a group and if your not apart of a group , or sitting by yourself you will be considered a loner. Im saying this because of experience. My 8th grade year i had to leave and get out, i wish i could have stayed but the bullying was just horrible. I was bullied by 5 (wanna be OG) boys.

This school and its staff do nothing to help students really needing help. You either keep up or get left behind. Even with so called "plans" that we are told teachers have to follow by law. El Portal in two years have broke us, i am ready to give up just as they have on my child. They will pass the kids through with no education and make them the high school s problem. Do not send your child to El Portal!

El Portal is a good school. There are great teachers who care about their students. In the last few years leadership has been a revolving door. Now the principal seems to be stable and things are developing smoothly.

This school has horrible leadership, poor teachers, and the students are out of control. I've had two children that had to attend this school and wish I could have provided transportation for them to attend elsewhere.

I am not a parent, I am a former student of El Portal Middle School. The teachers are awesome (Mrs. Marquis,Mr. Morango,Mrs. Sanguinetti,Mrs. Nelson and many more). I just wanted to thank you all for the three awesome years I was there at the school. I am really sad that I am leaving El Portal. Eventhough high school is a very big leep, I'm sure I can get though it , because of the incredible support I recieved over the three years at El Portal! Thanks again everyone for the awesome support. I am really glad that I got to go to El Portal Unified School District in Escalon, California. The one thing that I would change about the school is the extracurricular activities. There are not enough choices for the sixth graders. I know that you can't change that, but I wish you could.
