Welcome back to another great year at Porter High School! This year we are refining our Chromebook and adding a Learning Management System called "CANVAS." This system is used by many Universities and Post Graduate institutions. NCISD students will be on the forefront of technology innovation with the knowledge of this system. I encourage you as parents to come to registration and learn how to download the APP and follow your child's learning.
Our theme for the year is “νέα αρχή” or roughly translated; “A New Beginning.” Change is the one constant in the universe and as with all things Porter High School is growing and changing. The campus is undergoing an addition of adding 20 new classrooms on the west end of the building, two new tennis courts on the east end, and our Athletic program is revamped under the new leadership of Coach Jim Holley! As George Bernard Shaw stated;“Life is not about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” With that thought, we are re-creating ourselves into a bigger, better, and even more successful campus.
2016 was a great year and we had a lot of success in our programs. We were again rated as one of the top high schools in the Houston Metro area by Niche.com for the second year in a row. Also, the table below list some of the highlights from each of the Houses for this past year. I know that this year will be even better! As I tell every incoming class every year, “This is your campus... and you the students, make it what it is!” However, it is more than the students. It is a success triad made up of the students, the parents, and the school! Together we can accomplish even more for the 2017 school year! I hope to see you all at the various events we have coming up this year.
