We don't do anything in this school but sleep and text. I realize that all the teachers expect nothing from you! students here don't believe in ambition. The hard truth, I even have video footage of my everyday school day on youtube. Whoever rates this higher than one star might be for the very same reason that yes, we do have a lot of chat time and text but that misses the point. A school in New York or Los Angeles would be very diffrent. Where are all ther artists, singers, actors, writers, presidents, and inspirational people from? L.A. or NYC of coarse. Have you ever heard of a Denzel Washington from Brownsville or Porter HS? The point is that Porter is a school that hides kids from the fact that we are meaningless little ignorants. Well said.

I attended Porter H.S. my junior year, and as long as school spirit and students involvement I saw a great amount of it. The teacher and programs they have are meant to help students move ahead and catch up. I strongly believed this is a great school.

I agree that the HS of Technology is an excellent program and strongly advise against the choir program as well.
