IMMERSION AT KING SCHOOL 

 Great News!  The PPS Board voted to create a Chinese immersion program at King School.  This year, we will have two Kinder and two First grade classrooms that will learn half of the time in Chinese and half in English.  If you are a King student at Kindergarten or PreK and would like to participate in the lottery for this program, all you need to do is fill out an Interest Card at the office.  You can also call the office and fill one out over the phone (503-916-6456).  If you are not a current King student and don’t have any children at King, stop by the office to register for Kindergarten and fill out the Interest Card.  Representatives from the Department of Dual Language Immersion will be at our next PTA meeting to share information about this program. If you have questions about the program feel free to call the DLI Department at 503-916-3151.

PSU Partnership


Since 2006, students and faculty in the Portland State University Art and Social Practice MFA Program have been collaborating with community members, museums, organizations, and businesses to create site-specific and participatory projects. As an expansion of this work, the program has established a civic space at King School in Northeast Portland where PSU students are developing their artistic practices in a PK-8 context, creating neighborhood-based art projects, and bringing PSU activities directly to Portland Public Schools to advance socially engaged art education. 


Please visit the new PSU page under our community partners to learn more.
