My son has several learning difficulties, along with ADHD and Apraxia, and after just a month at Porter, all the difference in the world has been made with his self esteem and confidence. He is also not on any ADHD medication for the first time and has no problem focusing. His behavior has been amazing, and he has made several friends. This is an amazing school!!!!

Porter Academy was recommended to us by our grandson's psychiatrist when we decided not to have him In the public school system due to a severe learning disability. That was over a year ago and it was the best decision we could have made. He is thriving and happy.

Porter Academy is an amazing school! WE had a tough time trying to find the right school for our son. We tried secular private and public school, and Porter was finally the perfect fit. They have taught our son how to address his learning differences and use that moving forward. The staff is fantastic and highly recommend this school!

I absolutely love Porter for my son. Public school failed us and Porter met our needs. I’m so very grateful. The teachers are amazing with all the children. Therapy is amazing! I saw results within a few weeks.

My child has been at Porter for several years and I cannot imagine him being anywhere else. The love and support that he receives from all the staff and teachers is what I wish that I had growing up. My son is happy there and is progressed as he progresses. He has made huge gains since starting there years ago. They have many resources on site to help different challenges that the high functioning student body presents with. The children are taught responsibility and the internal reward systems work well. I have seen many students that started there failing at other institutions that succeed happily and peacefully at Porter. The smaller size is ideal for any student and most especially a student who has a learning difference or challenge. Porter is a bit of a best kept secret! SO happy that we landed at Porter.

After struggling greatly at a public school (with IEP support), both socially and academically, our daughter is finally thriving at Porter Academy. The small class sizes, developmental homerooms and OT/speech support have helped her to find success at school. She is now understood and encouraged every day.
