School is great, teachers are outstanding, principal has major ego. Replace the principal and the school would be perfect!
Portola elemtary is a great school to attend. The Teachers are great. They really care about their student performance and their learning. also the staff is outstanding! I enjoy the atmosphere in the school.
This is a GREAT school. My grandchildren love it and it is recognized as an exceptional school statewide. There is so much to write about it but beyond the super teachers are the committed parents. This is what makes the school so superior.
Another wonderful year at Portola. I couldn't have asked for more. I am amazed to see how my child has progressed in the last few years. Thank you Portola and your great teachers! Wish you all the best.
Great school and great teachers! I love everything about this school. My child is doing so well thanks to his teachers. I am lucky to have found the best school in town for my son.
I couldn't have found a better school for my son who started going to Kindergarten last Sept. My son has picked up reading and Math so quickly and I give all the credit to his teacher. The teachers are highly skilled and work very hard with each student. The school encourages parent participation which gives a feeling of a great community atmosphere. The staff members are also very warm, friendly and helpful. Keep up the good scores Portola. I wish you all the very best.
This school is top rate. The teachers are of the highest caliber, and the Principal runs the school flawlessly. It is a safe environment with parent and teacher cooperation in every area. The children learn EVERYTHING earlier (math, reading, spelling, science)than in any other elementary school I have worked with, and the academic standing for all grade levels are at the highest level in Ventura County. They also do a lot of extra-curricular activities for the children, and involving the family. They're #1!
I've had nothing but enjoyable years at Portola. My daughter is extremely happy and I am as well. I wish Portola went all the way to 12th grade! Haha!
