On Health & Safety: Porter Ridge has a great system to try to stop bullying. We have this bully box, where if you feel like someone is bullying you and you don't want to be that "snitch" you can stop the bullying by reporting it through one of the 3 bully boxes.

High School Senior

On Food: It would not be fair to review the cafeteria on quality of food, menus, healthy food options, etc when I leave campus everyday before lunch. I have classes of campus during the last few classes of the day at the local community college so I have lunch off campus as well since I leave before lunch starts.

On Extracurriculars: Porter Ridge has the best extra circulars. There's something that can appeal to everyone, whether it's sports, or club. They is all different kinds of things including religion clubs, cultural clubs, community service clubs, leadership, medical, farmer, academic, and so many more clubs that you can join.

On Administration & Policies: The Porter Ridge School Administration is great. The principal, Mr. Basden aka Sammy B, is fantastic no matter how many times he repeats himself. The guidance counselors are okay, but they're new so it'll take some time for them to get used to things at the Ridge. The school policies are all very reasonable.
