Portledge School Photo #1 - 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.
