“There Is Always Something I Can Do!” This is our philosophy and way of life at Portola Elementary. “There Is Always Something I Can Do” applies to all three sectors of our students’ lives: Academic, Social and Emotional. Our mission is to empower children to be: good decision makers, effective problem solvers, emotionally intelligent and in healthy relationships. Through the day-to-day practice of the strategies we teach, our students know they have options to choose from when confronted with any circumstance.

Our dedicated and accomplished teachers work collaboratively to meet the varied needs of our students, implementing research-based programs to accelerate and enrich the curriculum. Portola will continuously evolve to meet the needs of our diverse learners to prepare them for success, to be lifelong learners and to be responsible members of society.
