Portledge Lower School
Portledge is an independent, pre-nursery through twelfth grade coeducational, college-preparatory day school.
The School`s coordinated sequential program provides an academically excellent education that prepares students for responsible and productive lives.
Dedicated teachers, small class size, and a warm and personal atmosphere combine to advance high moral standards and individual accomplishments.
Our teachers understand that for middle schoolers this is a time of self-exploration and self-definition. They teach and coach the whole child and understand their critical role in helping young adolescents develop confidence and become more independent.
Middle schoolers are constantly changing, and our teachers themselves are energized by this.
