King School - Portland Public Schools

At King School, we believe that the racial and cultural diversity of our students is a tremendous asset.  We do not believe in a deficit model that posits students of color or English Language Learners as challenges that schools must overcome.  At our school, we see the learning advantage that comes with bilingualism and the cutting edge ability our multi-racial student body has to learn, create and lead together as the United States becomes increasingly diverse. We are fortunate to have the resources to learn how diverse cultures manifest their tradition, story, and human values through the arts and a teaching staff that is eager to encourage students to appreciate the cultures of their home and the world.   At King School, we believe we will succeed in transforming our school!  At King School, the dream is alive!
