School Reviews

This school is Staten Island's best kept secret! My daughter is now a sophmore. Teachers & Leadership are fabulous. Staff goes out of the way to help students achieve their academic goals. The principal, Timothy Gannon, sets the positive tone of communications with families, genuine caring for the students, responsibility and action. My daughter had been bullied in the past, and other schools let it grow till it became problematic. At Port, they get involved as soon as they hear about something and shut it down! My daughter is a special education student who is excelling for the first time in her life under Port Richmond's staff guidance and support. A truly committed team, happy students, and proud families! Go Raiders!!!
