Porter Ridge High School was recognized as an International School on Aug. 23, 2012, during a system wide recognition held at Central Academy of Technology and Arts.

On a school level, the highest designation is an International School, for which the school had to achieve 85 points or higher. These schools were awarded a large banner that will be hung outside their school and a plaque.

On hand to receive the award were members of the PRHS Globalization Committee and Principal Sam Basden.

There were 10 schools to achieve International School status: Cuthbertson High, Kensington Elementary, Weddington Elementary, Central Academy of Technology and Arts, Weddington High, Antioch Elementary, Indian Trail Elementary, New Salem Elementary, Porter Ridge High and Weddington Middle. In the previous school year, PRHS was recognized as a Global Partner School.
