    "Last year, my last child graduated from Portola. I wanted to publicly thank the principal and her teacher for pulling my daughter out of one class to receive extra reading tutoring in the fourth grade. My daughter was not embarrassed because the other kids were jealous. My daughter has joined the book club at Parkside and is thriving. I also wanted to thank the principal for one of my last heartwarming memories at Portola: At one of the last PTA meetings I attended, he asked for and received money to tutor 5th grade graduating boys in math since they stayed after school to play basketball. He said he wanted to send the boys off to their next school with their "best foot forward." I loved and miss Portola!"

    "Portola is a wonderful school for the students, as well as the parents and community. We have had the best experience over the years. If there is anything that could improve, it would be the reduction of split classes and reduced class sizes. This is a district-wide issue and the Portola PTA and school administration continue to do their best to alleviate the situation."

    "GREAT STAFF AND PRINCIPAL! My eldest graduated from Portola and I currently have one attending now. I will also have my youngest joining the ranks next year. With the class sizes growing it's always a concern if your child will get lost in the shuffle and get left behind. But not in Portola's case. The staff and principal truly care about each student and addresses you personally with any concerns as well as achievements of your child. The principal knows EVERY student by name as well as the office manager. The parents are very involved and everyone looks out for everyone else. Because of this school's learning structure and care behind it, I feel they prepare the students for what is to come in middle school and high school. The foundation and atmosphere at Portola is a great stepping stone into the world of education."

    "My daughter went to a Christian school for 3 yrs. and started Portola when she was 1st grade. She is now on her 4th and I am saddened by the fact that next year will be her last year here. She really enjoyed being at Portola. All her classmates are very nice and I am proud to say that Mr. Rohrbach, Ms. Chapman and all the teachers are great and wonderful. We're grateful that Portola is our school district. You're the best!"

    "Top notch school---Principal, Teachers, Staff, curriculum, PTA, the kids! I transferred my child mid-year due to being bullied at a catholic school. I was very anxious and nervous about the quality and experience of a public school education. I can earnestly say that Portola far exceeds my expectations on every front. The Principal is visible and involved with all the kids on a daily basis, and he is great at representing and leading the school's interests from a broader district perspective. The children all demonstrate strong values and treat their classmates with great respect. Besides Portola having a rigorous curriculum, I'm more impressed with the individualized attention they are committed to giving each child to meet them where they're at--whether the child is below avg, average, or above average, the teachers are very astute as supporting and challenging each student (they don't just teach to the "mean" population of the bell curve). I'm very proud and fortunate to have my child at Portola!"
