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 is a Great school all the teachers are nice and helpful.I am currently a 7th grader at El Portal middle school and i love being here. But it will be sad weni have to go to high scool. Iwould miss all the teachers :( But anyways its a great school in a small town!
i am a student at epms its an awesome school with great teachers wow i wish didnt have to graduate this year but i have to :(.. El Portal has a great principal, Mr. Vos and vice principal,Ms Sharkey, they help the schoool be safer and safer everyday so thanks for everything in the past 3 years i hope i see you guys in other places tto bye love this school alot!
im not a parent ,but iam a student of elportal.woow where can i begin first the teachers where the coolest teachers ever (some) they where always there when you needed them in the good n bad ..most of them where fun mostof them where not to good ..jajaja but what can we say they help us in ever thing we need help .just one day we have to tell them from the bottom of ower heart 'Thank you for hepling me in mostly everthing '.. the one thing ill change of that school is to paint the restrooms make them more bigger, n put fontens that do work...
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.
