I wish that the lottery system was public to ensure that it is fair. It is very difficult to get into, even for upcoming 1st graders.


Posted May 23, 2014

This school is good on paper. My children are very good at taking tests, and they are academically successful, but the atmosphere at Porter borders on clinical. I have heard from several staff members that the principal is difficult to work for, and having had our first issues requiring her attention (in 6 years) I find that to be true as a parent as well. Porter checks all of the boxes, but is far from a nurturing environment. The good thing with a single, powerful leader is that they can get results, but the only results that seem to matter are the test score the kids get. The format for this school has amazing potential, but that's where it ends.

I have been affiliated with this school for 6 years now and it has been a great place for my child who started in 1st grade and is currently in 6th grade (middle school). I have a child that's in 3rd grade at this school too and it has been an ongoing success academically and socially. No, school is perfect, but Mary G. Porter comes pretty close to perfection as far as my children academic needs are concerned. I'm confident that the quality of education they are receiving will promote future success in every avenue of their chosen profession. It is a school of choice and I'm grateful they have the opportunity to attend this school.

I HATE THIS SCHOOL! The principal is very picky. She has her favorites. My student is going to godwin noe.


Posted January 5, 2013

This is our first year at Porter and we could not be more pleased with our experience. Our 3rd grader was pulled in the lottery and our 6th grader was wait listed, but did get in a week after school started. The excellent reputation and test scores are what drew us to apply initially, but the extracurricular activities are a huge plus. Our 6th grader doesn't enjoy contact sports but was very excited about being on the golf team, and then he also signed up for and loved archery. He is also taking robotics now then woodshop next semester as elective courses. The middle school he's zoned for doesn't offer any of these (they do offer robotics and woodshop, but only as after school clubs). Our 3rd grader is singing in the chorus and can't wait to be old enough to play volleyball. They both absolutely love Porter and as a parent I'm very glad they're there. My only regret is that we didn't move to PWC and apply for Porter sooner.

My daughter attended Porter for her middle school years. She is now in high school and the experiences she had in middle school has prepared her for high school environment. The principal and staff were supportive and helpful giving the extra time and attention to the needs of the students. Many long days and night are put in by the principal and staff. They might not be able to attended all functions but are aware of the students performances and accomplishments and thankful for the great students and families. Having families of their own they give more time to the students of Porter. It is truly a family with everyone caring, and looking out for each other.

Mary G. Porter has not only the best test scores but The Best Principal. My children are cared for and loved. The principal strives to protect the students and has high expectations. She wants all of us to be accountable. She has a tough position and especially with parents that want their own way. It saddens me to read any negative statements about Porter. The success of the school is the proof of the results and over 600 parents wanting their child to go to Porter. My children have been there 8 years and I applaud the staff and thank them especially the principal!

Porter is outstanding! The school really works on making it Bully free! The principal is wonderful and loves my kids. She gives tough love and only wants a climate that promotes success. I am so happy with all the technology. My son is making QR codes.

The teachers are excellent at Porter. The principal does have a strong personality... and a kind heart. I've spoken with the principal about different issues. Eventually, she did listen to me, and implemented changes over the past two years. No matter what school you choose, it is very important to be involved in your school in some way, and to continually speak up with gentleness and respect., then you are more likely to be heard. My children transferred from a private, Christian school. Their biggest challenge was learning a totally different way of doing math. Also, they are not pampered. Socially, my kids have friends from different religions and cultures and countries. Any disobeying of the rules is quickly taken care of with reasonable consequences. The staff also rewards their students for showing Star Qualities. (character qualities like, respect, courtesy, etc...) Parents are required to submit volunteer hours. This is also what makes the school good, because of the different talents and skills that the parents give back to the students and teachers. Overall, it is a good school, because the teachers and the principal genuinely care about the kids.

I have kids at Porter too, and have issues with the principal. Wondering how she is still there with all these complaints? Did anyone bring this up to the PTA or the school board?

If you are a parent looking for a safe bully free school this is the best place. if your kids in elememtary school theyll love it, middle not so much. As a student I can say the principal is a warm-hearted person, but as a principle she has too much control. The njhs and sca in the school are just little servants who do chores for facuilty whereas in other schools they have a signifugant role. students are forced to sign agreements that ban students and parents from critisising the school openly through the web and studens are punished for it. Also some of the teachers are too sarcastic and verbally abusive at some points this leads to students talking back and disipline referrals. The school adds too many tests to increase averages and this adds stress.Lastly the schools obsession with publucity has a negative effect on sports and such. There is extreme pressure on the robotics and basketball teams to exceed or else there are conciquences. Last year the robotics teams had unbelieveable success but only one team went to the international championships because money was (tight) but that year the school spent over 1k on ipods and technology to draw attention for the technology labs.


Posted April 26, 2011

At this school and we have won the title "School of EXCELLENCE" 5 times, IN A ROW. So... tell me, why is it that Leesylvania has a better rating than us? Kids at Leesylvania probably get more referrals than us too. Plus, you have to apply to Porter to have the chance of getting in. So our school should definitely not have the rating of three stars, meaning average. We are an above average school. And by the way, our teacher staff is also excellent, as well as parent involvement.


Posted March 28, 2011

Dear Parents: I would like to hear more about this school and principal. This year my boys selected thru the lottery process. I would like to know your positive and negative views on this school. I am noticing a number of parents raised issue with Principal, was is raised in the PTA. How long this principal is serving this school, how long is her tenure in this school? I How about the school curriculam? How the students feel about their school? How are the other yeacher's and staff's behaviour? How about extra curricular activities? The parents of prospective enrolling student will be highly benefitted from your kind reviews. If there is change needed, how influential the PTA is? Awaiting your kind response.

It would seem to be that whoever says they like the principal have not had any sort of one-on-one with the principal. She seems to have her own agenda in doing things, and who does that agenda benefit? It is unclear other than it may just feed her need to be in power. It is a shame. Many parents are excited to bring their children to this school, whether it be from the consistent good grades on the SOL's, the uniforms or the required parent-involvement, but it is quite disappointing that there seems to be a lack of heart in the school, but instead, there's plenty of whitehead and administrative staff to back it up. The couple of teachers I have gotten to know have been okay, but with all the hype of the school, I'd expect way more than just okay. My children now attend Rosa Parks Elementary, and I was blown away by how incredibly wonderful everything is there. Now I know that it wasn't just my imagination that Porter could use a lot of improvement. When the principal and upper staff fall short, it trickles down to the rest of the school. It is like having a rotten apple in a bag with other apples. The rotten apple, and those apples close it need to be removed.

Its not that she is a bad person, her a as principle is whats bad. She micro-manages, and has to control everything. She has tried to control what we were so much now, its insane! And none of its in the "uniform Policy" book, nor is it in the code of behavior. She's trying to get all the parents to buy from Landing In uniform services, and they are so expensive! Some type of kickbacks are going on. Also, she will not hear us students out. Its immediately your wrong and shes right. Plus, im in the 8th grade, and she treats us like children. She talks down to us like we don't understand her and we are mentally challenged. My parents have tried to talk to her, and they say its impossible she refuses to hear you out and her option is "Your welcome to leave". I think some parents don't realize what they are putting their kids into when they enroll for that school. Plus, the curriculum is the same for county wide. The teachers, dont really push us and when The principle comes to "talk" to us, she ends up yelling at us as if we dont know anything. I mean , I'm a Student I am there 5 days a week, I know my school and its not as good as people make it seem to be.


Posted February 4, 2011

We are new to the school this year, but we love it. My daughter has pride in the school and has learned great discipline. Porter has taught her this, as well as instilling pride in her country, which seems to be going by the wayside these days. She has excelled in her academics and is challenged to go beyond regular classroom work. The PTA is very active in the school and does fun events. The extracurricular activites are wonderful - chess club, quill and scroll, robotics, to name a few. We love this school and feel very fortunate to have our daughter attend Mary G. Porter.

This school is a good school to receive an education based on the diversity, clubs, after-school sports, technology, etc. But unfortunately, this school is all about test scoresm test to learn, not learn to test, all about SOL's, School of Excellence. Numbers and Politics! I have had excellent support from the Middle School Superintendent. You might want to start with her before you go all the way up. If this not work, send compaint to Prince William Human Rights Commission, or Office of Civil Rights. Parents advocate for your children! M ake sure they do not get lost with all the outer trappings of what looks good, but make sure they get an equal education! It's about the children not how friendly or unfriendly the Principal is!

Porter has great staff and teachers. Unfortunately, there is a lot of tension surrounding them because of the principal. She is not a good leader and I can personally attest to her dismissive nature regarding my child. And no I am not one of those "difficult" parents with a problem child. There are enough complaints about The principal to merit consideration. Furthermore, taking anything up the chain of command does nothing because the assistant superintendent and Ms. Whitehead are best friends. Rae Darlington will not give credence to any complaint regarding Darci Whitehead. Ms Whitehead also allows for the girls to get away with a lot more bullying than the boys. Leadership starts from the top and trickles down. If the staff and faculty are not happy, it affects the students.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the Virginia Department of Education. Data is not reported when there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Course tests to assess students in reading, writing, math, science and history/social science subjects at the end of each course, regardless of the student's grade level. The SOL End-of-Course tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. High school students must pass at least six SOL End-of-Course tests to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
