Porterdale Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

Worst school ever. Half of me thinks this school should be investigated for cheating but if that were true I dont know why they never reach their AYP. We moved my son to another Newton Co. school where they did testing to see where he was academically. At Porterdale he scored slightly above his grade level for reading. The same test was issued at the other Newton Co. School and he scored well below his grade level in reading. He tested at below a first grade level for reading in the third grade!! At the end of the school year in the other School he was tested again and he tested at a 3.8 grade level. That is a huge improvement!!! I believe they pass kids through whether they can read or not. The teachers that we dealt with do not care and give the children the extremely easiest assignments. We go to church with several teachers from the same county and they all agreed that this school district is believed to just pass kids through. If your children are white you can expect them to be bullied and the administration to do nothing about it. Just an FYI.

I must say that I have been less than impressed by the emphasis on education at Porterdale. The focus seems to be more on wearing the uniform than on ensuring that the best learning takes place. Also, there seems to be a constant barrage of fundraisers.

As a new resident of Newton County, I did not have much to go by except how a friend characterized this school. I am so very sorry that I didn't do more research before putting my son in this school. I felt funny from day 2 that my son was at a bad school, but I tried to change that perspective. As for PT conferences, this is one of the only ways to speak and see the child's teacher. There is a required reading for 2 hours, even for Kindergarten. I am amazed that my son has only 20-30 minutes a day to run at full blast and have free time with his friends. I am not a fan of this school or the relationship of it's teachers with parents, at least this parent. And my son is a good student. He will not be attending this school next year!

Overall I am satisfied with Porterdale Elementary. I have worked with several of the teachers, and find they are dedicated to their profession and the children. I am disappointed in the administration and the 'politics' though. There is also lack of parental involvement.
