The Living School is a dual-language kindergarten through sixth grade private school in Southeast Portland. Our teachers use a variety of strategies to tailor the learning experience for each child. We strive to create an environment that ignites a passion for learning and nurtures the spirit of the child. With roots in Reggio Emilia, we teach core subjects in a project based, hands-on conceptual learning environment that emphasizes critical thinking and flexibility. Teachers, parents, and children work together using our portfolio guide to create individualized learning goals for each child.
In addition to literacy, math, science and social studies, students engage in art classes, physical education, and Spanish in a mixed age environment with a low student to teacher ratio of 9:1. We have a great community of caring teachers, parents and children. Visit one of our open houses to see if we’re a fit for you.
Open Houses at 6:00 on January 6, February 3, March 3, and April 7
