Experience community at Porter’s! One of the greatest elements of a Porter’s education is that students are encouraged to appreciate the uniqueness in themselves and in others. Our commitment to learning extends well beyond the pages of the books that we read or the problems that we solve. It includes equally a commitment to learning about ourselves and the others with whom we live and learn.
