    "High school was an amazing time for me; I made so many friends and grew close with some of my teachers. I learned a lot while having fun! Portland High School didn't feel like a waste of time and I looked forward to coming to school and learning something everyday, as well as communicating with friends! There was always extra help if you needed it, the faculty were awesome, and the guidance office always helped students no matter what! If I could do it all over again, I would!"

    "Although Portland is a small suburban town that is mostly caucasian, there is plenty of diversity in the high school. There are foreign exchange students and students that come from other towns, such as Hartford, to get a better education. Everyone gets along well and respects each other's beliefs and foundations. Anything mean is kept to themselves. We are all friendly with each other and strive to have a good time!"

    "Portland is a small town, and with only 300-400 students at the school, and around 50-60 faculty/staff, everyone is cole to each other. The students can connect with the teachers well, because every teacher recognizes you and gets involved with your academic and social life (in a good way). It's easy to communicate with teachers in a small school because everything is close-knit. The teachers are very comical and friendly, and they do their best to include you in activities and discussions! They believe in you and support you, and push you so you can be your best. They truly want to see you exceed and do great things!"

    "There are certain teachers at Portland High School who do an excellent job teaching. However, these performances are shadowed by the atrocious performances of others. There are teachers whose classes everyone dreads going to, the classes people cheer when they don't have and there is no way to hire replacements."
