- Christ the King Catholic School is rooted in teaching the loving message of Jesus to our school children. The administration, faculty, and support staff work tirelessly on behalf of our students to be positive Christian role models and strive for each student to grow spiritually, academically, physically, morally, emotionally and socially. The entire school staff works closely with parents, the primary educators of children, to ensure that each child has the opportunity to meet his/her potential. Our school is blessed with a supportive parish community that works to promote the importance of our school`s ministry.
- Christ the King School was founded in 1964. The school was originally staffed by members of the Sisters of Saint Mary of Oregon and the principal of the school was a SSMO until 1983. This position has been held by laity ever since. The school was originally founded to serve grades one through four and over the years the school facility has been expanded to accommodate the addition of grades five through eight and the establishment of a full-day kindergarten.
- The construction of the new parish church in 1980 allowed for further expansion of the school facility. The former church became the permanent parish hall, cafeteria, and gymnasium. The former parish hall would be converted into two classrooms. The most recent school facility expansion occurred in 1992 with the completion of the middle school wing, Colonel Robert G. Scott Memorial Library.
- Additional facility changes include the creation of a school music classroom in one area of the parish hall / gymnasium and the installation of a wood floor in the parish hall / gymnasium. Facility upgrades over time have included the construction of a covered playground area and the installation of modern playground equipment. In the summer of 2012, a new science laboratory/multipurpose classroom was completed.
- In 1996 Christ the King School was "Accredited with Merit" by the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges and Universities (now the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools) and successfully passed another full six-year term of accreditation in 2003 and again in 2009. Christ the King School is recognized and registered as a private school with the State of Oregon Department of Education with curriculum, staff qualifications, and all areas of operation meeting or exceeding state standards. Christ the King School is a member in good standing of the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA).

This is a wonderful school, filled with extraordinary teachers, a supportive and innovative principal who is a wonderful administrator and a community of families that are loving and nurturing. One of the best private Catholic schools in Portland. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an environment where your child will be supported and loved as well as academically challenged.
