Our children, once quiet preschoolers, were shaped into confident and capable young adults at Portledge. The wonderful atmosphere of the school, which more resembled an extended family, fosters a sense of personal growth and achievement mixed with responsibility for others and stewardship for our ever-smaller world. Their Portledge education has served them well as they excelled at college and now study medicine. Thank you Portledge!
