What would your kids say if you asked them what they love about da Vinci? At first, they might say their friends. But if you asked them to really think about it, I think most would say they love their teachers and doing some form of art every day.
And they’re right. Our teachers and our unique arts curriculum are what make da Vinci special. In an era where the arts are considered “extras," the arts are da Vinci.
Thanks to this integrated approach to teaching and learning, da Vinci students are thriving academically, socially, and artistically. This is one of the reasons we volunteer for the da Vinci Foundation.
The da Vinci Foundation raises money that is used to hire staff. It keeps our arts program safe from cuts in bad budget years and helps us expand in good years.
The da Vinci Foundation was established in the 2010-11 school year. Funds raised by the Foundation are used to supplement our staffing and are essential to maintaining our program. Foundation money can only be used for teaching positions.
The da Vinci Foundation is now managed by The Fund for Portland Public Schools
