It is exciting to see the many changes that are evolving at Dr. Gilbert L. Porter Elementary School. New technology is transforming classroom instruction, and students are actively engaged in all facets of learning. Interactive Promethean boards are in every classroom and we are now wireless, making our S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) theme a success. Students are not only learning about Math and Science, they are EXPERIENCING these subjects through the many hands-on lab activities. Our extracurricular activities, such as After-School Care Program allows students to develop socially, emotionally as well as academically. 

We are proud to say that Dr. Gilbert L. Porter Elementary has actively participated in the Dan Marino Foundation Walk-About for Autism for the past several years. A generous portion of all monies raised are returned directly to the ASD program at our school. 

Our students are rewarded for their success in areas such as: Academics, Attendance and Behavior with various incentives including- movie/popcorn parties which are hosted in our very own CCTV Movie Room. 


Our students are utilizing the most widely used reading programs in K12 schools known as Accelerated Reader, where every student is challenged to read and achieve. We have an active PTA and their commitment allows our students to experience exciting programs and assemblies. We encourage you to get involved by joining our PTA, volunteering at school activities, and taking an active role in your child's education. We look forward to a productive, memorable and successful 2021-2022 school year.
