    "It s truly shocking. Parents continue to pull their kids out of Portledge since the latest headmaster was hired and no it's wonder. We witnessed top administrators being downright mean and disrespectful to caring parents and teachers, and these administrators (especially the headmaster) are clueless on how to operate a school, with the education being mediocre, at best. Poor decisions are made, good teachers are terminated, kids don't receive consistency, parents are left in the dark and even the headmaster is constantly asking you for money, even during events like Grandparents Day. My Mother was mortified.Teachers work in fear and cannot express their concerns because they might be terminated if they speak out. There are way too many parents and teachers working at Portledge. They drink the Kool Aid in order to get 90% off tuition for their children but it s not worth it. We pulled our children from Portledge and they are educationally doing much better now in a well-run school. Portledge administrators have no idea how to run a school or properly educate children. Don't be fooled by manicured lawns, cherry blossoms, crown molding and a sales pitch. Sadly, we were."

    "I am a new parent at Portledge, I must agree with most of the post, the school lacks organization, they is lack of communication amongst teacher, administration, and parents. I am a little disappointed right now with the school and thinking of making a change in school for my son..."

    "My children have flourished in this warm academic environment. With small class sizes and relatively few students, this idyllic campus engenders a space where most everyone knows one another. Teachers share information with each other about my children on a regular basis. I'm always impressed that a math teacher knows how my son did in a game, and how the English teacher knows how my daughter did in math. It's hard to fail with this type of support system and encouragement. I'm also delighted at the diversity. Portledge is far from a stereotypical prep school. You'll find no crested tweed jackets and spectacles here. Behind the ivy covered facade, this school is dynamic and alive. With a foot in the educations basics and another in technology, it is at once traditional, while cutting edge. I'm always grateful I made this choice for my two children."

    "Beautiful campus hides a host of problems, from spoiled children to disconnected teachers, and a serious lack of organization."

    "My children are so happy at Portledge! The faculty is excellent and they really care about each individual child. The graduating seniors are always so kind and well-spoken. I would never, ever consider putting my children anywhere else."
