Portland Christian School - Portland Avenue Campus

Portland Christian School is not a substitute for the Christian home or Christian parents or congregational activity, but is a supplement.
We believe education concerns the whole nature of man--body, mind and spirit.
To educate and train this mind and this body to the neglect of the spiritual nature is the sad weakness of public education.
It is in man's spiritual nature that he is most like or unlike God who created him to be in His image.
The greatest tool in the hands of man for the education of his spirit is the Bible.

School Reviews

1952-1956, I attended grades 9-12, my son attended 11th and 12th grades - 1978-1980. I served as a member of the Portland Christian School Board from 1988 to present (2016). I taught math, directed adult programs, and served as the corporation's business manger in public education during a 34 year period - 1961 thru 1995. I then became the administrator of the Portland Christian Schools for 7 years, 1995-2002. Students that have attended Portland Christian have in general received a better education than those that have attended public schools (special education classes were not available at Portland Christian, but advanced placement classes were available).
