  • Greetings!

    Creative Science School K-8 is a Portland Public School. As a Focus Option school, all enrollment is handled through the Office of Enrollment and Transfer and the lottery process. To learn more about Creative Science School we invite you to attend one of our Information Sessions this winter. Attendance at these sessions are not required in order to apply for the lottery, but please know that we are unable to provide private tours or classroom visits outside of these times. We begin enrollment in Kindergarten and have limited transfer spots available for first through seventh grades.
