New Club Info-SAVE (Students Against Violence Everywhere) is a unique and powerful approach to youth safety because it recognizes the role that young people can take in making schools and communities safer. Because SAVE chapters are established and operated by students, the opportunity to spread the message of nonviolence to young people and their communities is enhanced when SAVE chapters exist. Focusing on crime prevention, conflict management and service projects, SAVE students are providing positive peer influences in violence prevention efforts. The club will meet the second Wednesday of each month from 3-4 p.m. in F101. See the Club Sponsors, Mr. Chang & Dr. Johnson, or the Club President, Amber Brumfield, if you have questions.

Pirate Prep-Porter Ridge High School will be introducing an exciting new program called Pirate Prep! Pirate Prep is a program that will help support ALL Porter Ridge students in their academic growth while preparing them for success outside of high school. Students will have additional time during the school day to receive help in their core/elective classes, state testing (SAT, ACT and EOC’s) and have direct access to Guidance Counselors to receive help with College Application Information, Scholarships and Much, Much, More all during the school day! It is our intention that this program will help students gain valuable time with teachers and counselors without interfering with instructional time.
