    "My son started this year 2014. He must be going to a completely different school. He is in 4 honors courses. The biology course is maddening with notes on the board and students copying them EVERY day except Wed, then they have a lab. The history is 5 hours of study every night followed by a test every blessed day.... and the Spanish lets kids fall through the crack. We have had a hard time getting any teacher to give him individual attention. So, this smart kid is falling behind. We hate this school. No teacher really cares."

    "The teachers at this school go above and beyond for every student I know. They meet them where they are and work really hard to get them to excel."

    "My daughter transitioned into Porter Gaud in the seventh grade. We had the option of going to neighboring Ashley Hall (all girls) or Porter Gaud and I truly believe we made the right choice. We have yet to experience the elitism or cliques. Academically this is a superior school, the fine arts are great compared to others in the area and the school is competitive in the sporting arena. I totally forgot to mention that the student life and clubs are more than my oldest had in school. Although it is pricey, we wouldn't send her anywhere else. She loves this school!!!!"

    "Aside from its high society social cliques and less than honorable administration, Porter-Gaud really does offer a wonderful education, especially if your child follows the AP track in high school. The teachers are absolutely fabulous. I owe so much of my wonderful education to them, and will always admire and respect them for the knowledge and humility they have endowed me with. But I have to disagree on the point of Fine Arts. The quality of musical and dramatic education is very low. In fact, the recent expansion of the programs is nothing but a sham. Most of the classes consist of students watching movies. If your child is really interested in fine arts education I would suggest sending them elsewhere. The Governor's School has a wonderful program, but PG is far superior academically."
