I have clients who moved here a few months ago, and they wanted to know all they could about our schools.
I gave them his name and contact info, and they were so pleased with
being able to speak directly to him, and with all the information he

Portsmouth is served by three elementary schools, all of which are very
good schools. Which school kids go to is determined by geographic
locations within the town. To see which areas of town are served
by which elementary schools, you can check out the Portsmouth Elementary School District Map.
