  • We are the only private high school in Oregon specifically designed to meet the needs of students with complex learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder issues.
  • Though it's rare that one of our students` only learning challenge is ADD, we have found ADD to be a significant component in a diagnosis that could also include Dyslexia, Auditory Processing Disorders, Nonverbal Learning Disorders or Visual Perception Disorders.
  • No two students are exactly alike, so customized approaches to learning is our normal mode of operation.
  • Our partnership with Jesuit High School (www.jesuitportland.com/) means that our students have access to all their extracurricular activities (i.e.
  • sports, clubs, dances, etc) and students who meet specific academic standards have access to any Jesuit class (i.e.  Spanish, calculus, physics, etc).
