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.
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.
Dear PPS staff and families,
Summer has started, but we want to let you know that the PPS Task Force on the Superintendent Recruitment is continuing to meet on a regular basis and work is happening daily to advance our efforts to find and recruit our next superintendent. We have a final position description and are still actively recruiting candidates. We appreciate the feedback and candidate recommendations we have received from the community to date. Below are highlights of our last meeting. We will keep you informed as we go forward. Thank you.

Dear PPS Families,
Over the summer, crews will be working in schools throughout the district to address health and safety issues, using funds from the bond that voters approved in May. At the same time, planning is under way for bigger projects to rebuild three high schools and a middle school. We wanted to give you an update on what is coming up.
