It's that time of year again where we ask you, our community, to please fill out an evaluation of our school and teachers. The feedback we receive from parents and students is invaluable to both the faculty and the principal to find out what is working great and what may need some reexamination and guidance. You can pick up the survey(s) in person at the front office (where you may also drop them off) or click the links below. Completed surveys may be turned into the front office, mailed to: 7654 N Delaware Ave, Portland 97217, emailed to:, or faxed to: 503.445.0058. Thank you for your feedback.

Last month we announced to our community that we will be ramping up our search for a new site for our school in the coming weeks and months. Our landlords have extended our lease through June of 2018 so that they may move their school into this site the following school year.

We understand that this probably creates a lot of questions for you and your students/prospective students. We have put together both an FAQ of site related questions and a Prospectus for our new site wishes. You can find both of those at these links: Site Search FAQ and Prospectus (you will also see these listed under the About Us tab, Board section).

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or site suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact the Site Committee, Mr. Berg, or the front office.
