The Porter Ridge High School Robotics Club teams competed in the Spring Robotics Challenge at the SPCC Tyson Family Center on Saturday, April 22. This year’s Vex IQ Robotics competition for high school robotics was a points game of skill and longevity. The goal was to knock large foam jacks from a barrier down the middle of the field. Points were awarded based on where they landed or if they were pushed to the other side. Points were also awarded based on a robot's ability to lift itself against the frame of the field.
After two years of planning and preparation, on April 7th the Porter Ridge Pirates Abroad Club departed for their eleven day journey to Europe. Twenty-one students and six adults departed Charlotte to visit and learn the culture of four different countries led by English teachers Amanda McDevitt and Aaron Boyles, and PR's school nurse, Charlee Williams.
Two students here at Porter Ridge High School will be graduating in June with a high school diploma and an associate's degree from South Piedmont Community College for the first time in PRHS history. Kayla Prince and Tristan Shea are two seniors who have worked year round to earn both.
