In honor of National Art Awareness Week the Fine Arts Dept. would like to thank the Administration and Faculty of Porter Ridge High School for their unwavering support of the Fine Arts Programs here. In the Fine Arts curriculum the students become family and support each other and their teachers. "Learning in a Visual Age, it becomes imperative that students have the art background to be well rounded people. It is a proven fact that the new CEO’s and directors hired by companies are creative people who can think outside of the box and therefore are better problem solvers. They have imagination, perception, recognition and sensitivity. All personality traits and talents which take them further in being great managers of people. At PRHS we strive to broaden the Fine Arts students’ view of the world globally and creatively," commented Jan Kerley.
Six Porter Ridge students accompanied Math Teacher Jennie Yearick on a travel tour of Greece in June of 2016. They spent three days in Athens learning about the Greek culture and experiencing the beautiful countryside as well as unique sites such as an olympic stadium, The Acropolis and Parthenon, the Temple of the Oracle of Delphi. There was plenty of local shopping for souveniers, a "Greek Evening" with traditional food and dance, and a fun cooking class to boot!
Four years. Eight semesters. Thirty-two classes. Graduation is a day every high school student can’t wait to reach, but it's what has been done and accomplished along the way to graduation that really counts. For Porter Ridge High School Senior Joanny Rodriguez, "It's been full of ups and downs and many obstacles, but it's all been so worthwhile."
