From the Principal

Welcome to PORTA Junior High School!
Whether you're coming to us as a student or parent, your two years here in the junior high with us will be exciting and memorable. From 7th graders traveling back in time with Mr. Leischner to 8th graders inventing futuristic products worthy of an appearance on "Shark Tank" with Mrs. Saladino, there is no excuse to be bored. My advice to incoming 7th graders at their visit day in May is to really take advantage of the opportunities this new year can provide. Try out a new sport! Maybe two or three! Go to the Student Council dance! See what Scholastic Bowl is all about! Keep school work as your first priority, and you may find that some extra involvement will keep you motivated and focused on your goals. 
With the students we'll have in the junior high this year, I know we'll make this year great! I'm excited for a fun and successful year!
