VOICES OF OUR COMMUNITY

“We joined the PG Community in 2016 from Chicago and have loved getting involved in this great community.  We’ve found it incredibly rewarding to give back to this school for the benefit of our children’s education and to impact Porter-Gaud’s future generations of children.”

Dee and John Fortson

Parents of Jack (2024) and Matt (2025)

“At PG, I was inspired. That zest for learning that I got at PG stayed with me throughout my graduate work and early career.”

Jessica Baron

Alumna, Class of 2006
Pediatric Dentist 

“There is a magic in the enthusiasm that the community of Porter-Gaud exudes. This enthusiasm spells the difference between mediocrity and true accomplishment and is in this collective enthusiasm and sense of purpose that we are Cyclones and we thrive.”

Holly Hyde

World Language Faculty
Porter-Gaud Parent

“PG not only sparked my interest in the international community but it also taught me how to bridge relationships between people who are different from me.”

Dr. Melvin Brown

Alumnus, Class of 1987
Physician 

“We moved to Charleston from the Northeast, and the entire school community could not have been more welcoming to my family. I am grateful for an easy transition.”

Caroline West

Parent, Third and Fourth Graders

“Being a service leader meant that I had to be somebody people looked up to. I had to learn new things, be friends with new people, and hear different opinions. Service really helped me open up and come out of my shell."

Chandler McKelvey

Alumna, Class of 2019
Service Leader

"That’s what Porter-Gaud is great at - uniting everyone. No matter where you come from or where you live, you’re going to find your friends, and these are the people you’re going to know for the rest of your life.” 


 

Holston Slack

Class of 2020

“There is much to learn from the stories of those who came before us – if captured fully and cast in an honest light. There is also no better audience for these stories than children. Their minds are incredibly elastic and, as stewards of the future, they perhaps more than anyone need to learn from the invaluable lessons history has to offer."

Daniel Jordan
