  • Welcome to Martin Luther King Jr. School!  We are a school with a strong history and a bright future.  Our PK-8th grade students represent the future of this great city and we are proud to have many local partners supporting us.  As an International Baccalaureate authorized school, we seek to provide inquiry based, thematic learning for our students.  Integrated arts is also at the heart of our work. These experiences serve to bring the content alive!  Please visit the Integrated Arts page for more information about our partners.  Finally, we are a Mandarin Immersion school, providing Mandarin language instruction in a 50/50 model.  We art partnered with the Albina Head Start program where many of our students receive Mandarin instruction during their Pre-K experience.

     

    Our Mission:

    Martin Luther King, Jr. School believes in the unlimited potential of everyone in our diverse community.  We believe that a caring well-balanced student will be motivated to become a global citizen who is inspired to take action.

     

    Warmly,
