  • Help Support our Family who was displaced due to a House Fire!

    The Davis family, all 6 of them, lost everything to a house fire today, 12/9/17. They got out only with the clothes on their backs. 4 of them are children. The home this beautiful family lived in is at 166 NE Lombard St. It is a total loss. The Red Cross has put them in a hotel room for a week, but they will need to rebuild from nothing. They need funds for EVERYTHING! Please, give what you can to this family! Thank you so much!
     There is also a benefit dinner at 6:30 pm Tuesday night (12/12)Arist Repertory Theater on SW Morrison Street. They are asking for clothing, food, cat food and hygiene donations. Don't shoot Portland is helping with the event. 
  • SMART Reading at MLK School

    Reading is a vital foundation for educational and life success, and it must start early!

    Reading is the gateway to learning, opening doors to faraway adventures, new possibilities and promising futures. Without strong reading skills, children will face a host of difficult challenges throughout their lives. That’s why we know that reading matters. And that’s why SMART helps thousands of Oregon children each year develop the self-confidence, enthusiasm and motivation they need to read and succeed.

  • 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.
