This school is not good. We live in the district and have made the choice to send our children to another school district. Thank goodness that a relative lives in a high performing school district nearby. We have no regrets. Our children are years ahead of children in the same grade. They make excuses and blame the students, parent involvement etc.. It's never the teachers or administrators fault. There are no textbooks. My children's school district was teaching the Common Core skills before the state required it. When looking for a place to move your family to. I advise you to pay the extra money in school/real estate taxes so that your children will be in a better school district. Good town. Horrible school district.

I have one child that has gone through the Port Jervis Middle school (now in high school) and I have nothing but good memories of the school. The teachers were very involved and quick to contact me if ther wre a noticalbe change in my childs performance.

My child has only been attending this school for half of this school year and during this short amount of time I am not pleased with how this school has handled my child's (IEP) individualized educational plan for the reasons stated below: 1) They don't continually follow the IEP by providing all of the child's related services, therefore you have to check regularly by questioning your child on a daily basis or spend time contacting this school to verify if your child is receiving all the services he/she should be receiving. They also tend to leave off services from the IEP which should be included - you need to carefully read the IEP before signing off on it. 2) They wanted to declassify my child from services that are still very much needed which tells me they really don't give a hoot for my childs needs.

I have heard so much controversy over Port Jervis Schools. I was concerned about sending my child there, but I wasn't financially able to send them to private school (I have 4 children), BUT...It's not anything like I've heard! My oldest daughter is in 8th grade this year and my next is in 7th. No problems at all with teachers talking down to her or her friends. The academics impressed me, in fact my daughter made the Honor Roll. The work is just as hard here as it is anywhere else. I think some people need to remember the saying, 'You get out of it what you put in to it'. I like this school and the teachers. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I just hope everyone finds out forthemselves what this school is REALLY like, not just going by hearsay, Mine or anyone elses.

Teachers/faculty talk down to students calling them 'losers' and they get away with too much in this district. Too many people are related creating many 'social' problems. If you're from Port Jervis or related to someone you get away with more! They hide alot of their problems and there are alot of physical fights amoung the students that never get resolved. there is a large % of obesity in Port Jervis and alcohol and drug use. They really should consider drug testing for the faculty/teachers! Their mentorship/coaching leaves alot to be desired!
