It is never too early to think about Middle School. Come join us to get a taste of Portola Life. You’ll meet the Matthew Burnham, the Principal, the teachers, and the students. You’ll learn about Universal Design for Learning, Dual Immersion (English/Spanish instruction) and more. We’ll have tours of campus, and you can view the architectural plans of the new campus. Additionally, you can learn about after school programs and ways you can volunteer.
A map of campus can be found here:
In addition, some elementary schools in the Portola catchment hold Portola Panels, featuring Portola students answering questions from students and parents. Portola parents and Mr. Burnham are also on hand to field questions, but the real stars of these panels are the wonderful Portola students!

Drew and Phil will answer: What is The Common Core? Why are we moving this way, and what parents need to know to help your kids. If you have never heard Phil and Drew speak, we encourage you to come on out. They teach our teachers, and are quite engaging! They will even make you want to do math! We will have a Spanish translator on hand as well as handouts and numerous resources in English and Spanish.
