All About Portland
Portland Public & Private Schools
Portland has the state’s largest school system. With its 75 neighborhood elementary and middle schools feeding 10 local high schools, Portland Public Schools offer students a challenging curriculum via a variety of traditional, charter and magnet schools. Specialty programs include courses in the fine arts, language immersion, International Baccalaureate programs, and emphasis on technical and health specialties.
Offering Portland parents and students more educational options, you’ll find a large number of private schools here as well. Private schools focus on offering curriculum ranging from foreign languages to fine arts to religion. Because many parents choose to home school their children, the Portland community offers one of the most supportive environments in the country.
