  • I really enjoy Portola. As a 7th grader there, I feel that the some of the friends I make now will continue to be my friends throughout my whole life. My teachers are fantastic, and try the best of their ability to give me the best education possible. The school's many pros outway the school's few cons. The campus is clean and beautiful, the library is full of books, and the classrooms are not over crowded.
