    "There was no other school I would have rather attended. While I believe there are some areas of improvement, PHS excels in many areas. The majority of my teachers have been amazing which I believe has made the difference. As a member of the girls varsity soccer team that won the D1 State championship twice in my career, I couldn't endorse another sports program any more highly."

    "I had an overall good experience at Portsmouth High School. There are many very good teachers and lots of different after school activities. There are many teachers within each department and each of them offers something unique. PHS also offers a wide variety of classes, and many AP level courses. However, over the past few years they have been decreasing the number of honors level classes that are available. Most of the focus in on sports, particularly football and basketball and the teams are very successful. The guidance department isn't very much help unless you go out of your way to ask for it. The college prep for seniors is very minimal unless you make a lot of appointments with your guidance counselor. Also, there is an overall lack of communication from the administration. There was often a lot of confusion due to the fact that administrators would not communicate certain things with faculty or students"

    "My high school offered every academic opportunity to prepare me for my chosen field. Freshman year I began with an introductory elective in Architecture and Interior Design. Next I took beginning and Advanced CAD finishing up Senior Year with electives in Architecture and Engineering Design. I'm so happy to say I'll be attending the RWU School of Architecture with a minor in Music Performance!"

    "I am currently attending this school, and it is spectacular. Droves of specialized classes are offered, as well as challenging and well structured AP classes. The culture here is friendly and kind, with almost zero fights between students and no physical bullying for the most part. The students are all dedicated and kind, the staff helpful, engaging and encouraging. The food is not the slop you might find at other schools, but something that is healthy and tasty (something to behold for a public school). It is well kept with modern facilities and access to all to computers and software relevant to education. I would wholeheartedly recommend this public school to anyone as the quality of education here rivals many private institutions. This school is easily a five star."
