Forest Park Elementary is located in the heart of the Forest Heights neighborhood in NW Portland. We serve about 400 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 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. In addition to our Site Council, our Family Organization, called Friends of Forest Park Elementary (FOFPE), acts as a combined PTA and Foundation to support school events and activities.
