  • More Portola News: Portola building project is out for bid!
    The project to rebuild Portola Middle School at the Castro site (Gladys and Donal, in El Cerrito) is out for bid. The beautiful new campus will accurately reflect the importance of education in our community, and provide our kids with excellent resources for learning and growing. The project includes energy-saving design features, such as a green roof, which filters rain water and reduces glare for the hill neighbors. Construction should be completed no later than Fall of 2016, and perhaps by the Fall of 2015. More from Kensington Hilltop PTA’s newsletter (PDF) >
