Open Quote This school is Staten Island's best kept secret!
Teachers & Leadership are fabulous. Staff goes out of the way to help students achieve their academic goals. The principal, Timothy Gannon, sets the positive tone of communications with families, genuine caring for the students, responsibility and action. My daughter had been bullied in the past, and other schools let it grow till it became problematic. At Port, they get involved as soon as they hear about something and shut it down! My daughter is a special education student who is excelling for the first time in her life under Port Richmond's staff guidance and support. A truly committed team, happy students, and proud families! Go Raiders!!! Close Quote

Open Quote The kids run this school. Teachers try to discipline but the administration tries to come up with a "better" solution than punishment, so the kids know they got away with it. The administration puts too much on the teachers, and could care less about their input. Morale among the staff is at an all time low. If the school closed tomorrow I think most of the staff would be thrilled. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
