Nestled in the foothills of Southwest Portland, Oregon, West Hills Christian School has been providing a quality Christian education to families of the Pacific Northwest for 70 years.
Through a compelling combination of quality teachers, first-rate enrichment classes, superb facilities, and a commitment to strong academic, athletic and extracurricular programs, West Hills provides a dynamic, supportive learning environment where students are both challenged and loved well. As a non-denominational Christian school, our school community represents dozens of different local churches in the greater Portland area.
While our school has stewarded growth and improvement over time, our mission remains unchanged: to provide an exceptional Christian education in accordance with God`s Word for students in kindergarten through 8th grade.
Three generations of alumni have returned to educate their children here...we encourage you to schedule a tour and find out why!
