Our mission at Porter Township Schools (PTSC) is to prepare our children to realize their fullest potential as lifelong learners and vibrant contributors to our community through programs, staff, and systems of the highest quality. We desire for EVERY student, EVERY day, to reach his/her fullest potential.

- School must be a safe and caring environment
- Decisions are made in the best interest of students
- Education develops good citizens that exhibit civic responsibility, exhibit high character, and contribute to community
