She does put a lot of $ in great programs that a lot of schools don't have. Thanks to her our school is not that bad. Do you except her to know everyone of the 5000 people that have went here. Better than many principles.

I gave her clarity a 1 because she couldnt give a cr*p about any of the students there. She says all this garbage about student striving for excellence and she is such a liar. Fort hamilton high school is a pretty bad school.

dear principal... here is my little suggestion:please give a special huge award to mrs.porto.. she is the most conscientious and the best college counselor in the world. she stayed in school for my college applications until 6 o'clock pm and helped me a lot. I dare say no other teachers or counselors could do that~ i really appreciate what she's done for me and for other students...

I think shes fake. Just a sfake as her smile. She dosent care abotu the kids. Shes nevr in the classrooms and never sees what really goes on in this school. She prides herself on this beign a good school, but thats just because she snever around to see how bad it really is.

Most of the teachers she has hired are good except for certain Math and Science teachers who hardly speak English and/or do not have teaching skills. Especially one of the Math teachers, Ms. Gorodkina is an embarrasement to the school. I know it's hard to find good Math and Science teachers, but please don't insult our intelligence by choosing the scrapings from the bottom of the barrell.

you ppl have no idea how much she is doing for our school... she is probably one of the best principals around; if not for her efforts, we probably wouldn't have half of the stuff we have in our school, including teachers. she is doing a great job as a principal, and if she yells at you because you behave like a monkey in the zoo, then it's your problem, not hers.

She's got the personality like a dead moth. She doesn't even work hard. She's only there for a pay check. She's very self-centered. Show me you want it Joann!
