Welcome to Porter Elementary
The mission of Porter Elementary School is to inspire our students to achieve academic excellence and make positive contributions to our community and world, by providing a challenging curriculum in a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment.
Our desire is to teach all students in a way that inspires them to develop a love for learning.
Through the expectation of high standards of personal performance, our school will provide a positive, supportive, and challenging environment with a core curriculum designed to meet the individual needs of all students.
We believe learning involves a strong partnership between the students, school staff, and parents. Parent and family engagement is a key part of the success of our students. Research studies consistently show that high student achievement and self-esteem are closely related to positive parental participation in education. We encourage our parents to be involved in many ways and at all levels.

Porter Elementary opened in the fall of 1965. The original building was enlarged to suit a growing population in 1975. The building had construction again in 2003 adding new classrooms and remodeling the existing space. The building as it now stands houses almost 715 students and 80 staff members. We are Proud Porter Eagles and practice that every day with our character traits of honesty, reliability, trustworthiness, being respectful, responsibility, fairness, caring, and being good citizens. We are always an Eagle in all ways.
