The Oregon Environmental Council certifies our school as an Eco-Healthy Childcare. This national program “ensures that child care settings are as happy, healthy, safe and green as possible by reducing children’s exposure to toxics.”

The school’s grounds have been designated as a Certified Backyard Habitat. This program is a collaborative effort by the Columbia Land Trust and Audubon Society of Portland. It credits our work to remove aggressive weeds, create wildlife habitats and garden responsibly.

"Yesterday my second grader added 61 plus 61 in her head and she's zipping through the Harry Potter series. So while the school doesn’t measure her progress with test scores, I can see how much she has learned, but more importantly, I can see and feel her excitement about learning."
