Our family has had the best experience having our child attend PCS HS. The small student to teacher classroom ratio has been very beneficial. The teachers and administrators at the school have all been very wonderful and helpful during our transition from public to private schooling. Our child is thriving being back in a classroom with both students and teachers with Christian values. I highly recommend Portland Christian Schools. Worth mentioning I have a friend who has a child at the elementary school and she loves it!

We chose to put enroll our son in PCS last year as a 6th grader. We moved here from CO where he grew up in an excellent school so our standards were high. PCS proved to be the absolute right choice for us. The teachers are highly qualified and skilled educators and are some of the kindest, most caring humans on the planet. They helped my son's transition to a new state, new city, new school , new classmates, etc. be as smooth and welcoming as possible. Which is saying something going into middle school! :-) This year they have a new jr. high/high school principal, Mrs. James, who has taught and been on staff at PCS for I think over 25 years. Already in her short time leading the charge this year we have seen an even more positive shift in the culture of the school. She leads remarkably well with such joy and kindness for every student. She is incredibly likeable and even more important, she is 100% reliable and knows what she's doing. We are so grateful to be a part of the PCS community and look forward to many more years there.
