I have two children who attend school here. During their time here, the kids have encountered many different peer situations - some good, and some challenging. Through every situation development of good character kept surfacing. The academics at the school are great, but the emphasis that is placed on developing qualities such as honesty, kindness and respect are valued to me as a parent far more important than day to day grades and making the A/B honor roll. The school and all of the employees there do an impeccable job at not only providing an education that prepares them for the state mandated testing, but they also teach the children character traits that many parents seem to have forgotten. PRES helps their children develop traits such as kindness, caring, patience, and more. The children are given Proud Pirate awards and Pirate coins for showing PRIDE in their school not only to their teachers, but also to their peers.
My daughter went here 5 years ago and now my son is in the 2nd grade here. This is one of the bet schools you could choose. The teachers are top notch as well as the principal and assistant principal. The office staff is great. We love PRES
We moved here from Virginia. I have to say that my child has been in the school for 4 years and has liked all her teachers. We think the school is very strong when it comes to the quality of the teachers.
My grandsons both attend and are new to this school. I live in Michigan, and have attended the open house and have been there for sharing lunch with them. so far everyone has been really helpful. I have met both teacher and they seem very caring and the boys seem to like them as well. I am hoping to be able to stay up with what there doing. We will visit as much as we can. Right now it's a once a month. submitted by a grandparent that wants to be involved with them.
We are new to the Porter Ridge schools. So far we've been pleased. The school is nice and clean, and the staff is helpful, if a bit uptight about the school rules. Some of the teachers are a bit inexperienced. I was surprised to see the test scores dropped so much from one year to the next. Also, I have NEVER seen the principal, ever. I have no idea if she really exists LOL, although I do see the assistant principal often and she seems very nice. The school also seems on top of special education issues. Overall I'd say we're pleased, although I'd like to see the test scores come up again.
