    "At Portage Central, I really enjoyed he numerous opportunities I've been presented with, the amount to great teachers I've encountered that actually care about my future, and the sense of community and involvement encouraged. My experience here has molded me into the person I am today. With the not so great teachers I have learned to become more independent and shape my future for the better. This community is a community I am very lucky to have grown up in."

    "Overall, I had a good four years at Portage Central. I met my best friends there who I believe I'll have for life and I had incredible teachers to help guide me through the rocky road of high school. I'm thankful for the opportunities I had at PC yet I am still excited to move on and graduate."

    "My experience at Portage Central High School has been fairly pleasant, but it certainly has had some problems. I think that the opportunities the school offers are exceptional, there are many chances to be able to participate in a successful and productive extra curricular activity or something equivalent. However, I believe that Portage Central certainly is lacking in some areas in terms of actual academics. In my opinion, some of the teaching provided to students is minimal and ineffective. Upon this, I believe that the classes offered are very split in terms of difficulty, and offer no sort of middle ground. There is either entry level classes that provide the simplest work with little to no challenge or classes that provide extreme difficulty with an exhausting work load. I believe that a system structured like this is wrong and limits the capabilities of a large group of students."
