School Headlines

Welcome to Horace O. Porter School where we strive to educate and empower. Our primary focus is facilitating academic achievement as we provide services to promote college and career readiness. Financial fitness is addressed through a specialized presentation for our high school students. We place emphasis on the Seven Keys to College and Career readiness. Additional areas of focus for our students include, but are not limited to: healthy life style choices, drug and alcohol counseling, social media safety, and bullying and harassment prevention. Timely topics such as human trafficking are addressed when they arise. Group sessions target individual needs such as anger management, conflict resolution, abuse and neglect and family issues.
Our students not only have the opportunity to learn through community service learning, but they also receive resources from this same community. James Martin Sandra Grensberg James Martin     Sandra Grensberg

WELCOME BACK Horace O. Porter Staff and Students

I hope everyone had a relaxing and fun summer break and you are ready to jump into the new school year with vigor and purpose. Hopefully, everyone had an opportunity to read the two books assigned for summer reading, "I Wish My Teacher Knew" and "Teaching With Love And Logic".
