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.

I loved this school. It took me in under its wing and I felt like I would never leave. I wish I could go back.Sincerely,Colby Geyer

We home-schooled our children for several years and decided they needed something different. So we sent our son to this school as a 7th grader. This has been a wonderful school and experience for him. We are planning to send his younger sister next year also. They show kindness and love. I can't speak to every teacher being the best or anything, but the facility is nice and our son enjoys it. God is a focus and the principal is great. The teachers and staff I have met make me feel welcome. I wish my finances were such that I could work there because it is a great environment. Portland is much more reasonably priced then some other christian schools and I feel my son is getting everything he needs from a school.
