Principal's Corner

Welcome to Porter Middle School, a California Distinguished School and a California Green Ribbon School!
I am very excited to join the exemplary staff and privileged to lead this dynamic community where students thrive and achieve.  Students are provided with an academically rigorous, challenging, and enriched curriculum which addresses the new California State Common Core Standards.


The excellent teaching staff provides students with a nurturing classroom environment which allows for positive interactions and connections.  Our staff is committed to successfully transitioning our students into high school with the skills necessary to become college and career ready.


I am pleased to work in a school which embraces respect and honors diversity.   Students are encouraged to ask questions, problem solve, and self-advocate.  Porter Middle School offers outstanding programs including a Highly Gifted Magnet, a School for Advanced Studies, and AVID.  Students have the opportunity to participate in art, music, computer, and Spanish classes as well as many clubs and after school programs. 


I encourage all family members to become an integral component of our school.   We have a Parent Center which offers classes and gives information to parents.  We have parent groups and committees which allows input from the parental perspective.  We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and the school.  A strong partnership with our families will make a great difference in our students’ education.   Together we can continue our legacy of success.
