Forest Park Elementary is located in the heart of the Forest Heights neighborhood in NW Portland. We serve about 450 students, grades kindergarten through 5th.
We pride ourselves on having a rigorous academic program. We consistently score in the top tier on our report card from the Oregon Department of Education. In addition to core academics, students regularly attend technology class, Mandarin, physical education, music, and library.
We also pride ourselves on having a diverse student body. At last count, over 18 languages are spoken by our students. The staff and community truly value inclusivity and diversity.
Our community is strong. Many of our students’ parents volunteer regularly in the classroom and are heavily involved in organizing and fundraising. Our PTA, Site Council, and Foundation are all extremely active.
Forest Park Elementary hosts many high quality before and after-school programs. Many students participate in after-school enrichment courses such as yoga, Spanish, parkour, comic drawing, etc. We also offer childcare before and after school. In addition to our onsite offerings, there are many offsite after-school programs that transport students from Forest Park daily.
