Welcome to Scott

Scott offers a neighborhood English program and Spanish Immersion program in NE Portland with a focus on college readiness. Please check out the new PTA section and staff bios on our Web site. Do you have other ideas for improving the Scott Web site? Let us know.

Learn About Our Spanish Immersion Program

Our Spanish Immersion program is an exciting and challenging program that serves students from all backgrounds. The Scott immersion program creates culturally competent world citizens capable of using, appreciating and developing academic and social language, both in Spanish and English, in a variety of settings. Learn more about our Spanish immersion program.

El estudiante de un programa de inmersión es un ciudadano del mundo culturalmente competente y con la capacidad de usar, apreciar y desarrollar los idiomas español e inglés tanto a nivel académico como social en situaciones variadas.

Preparing every student for college

Scott students, looking forward to college

Our goal is to prepare every student for college or career. Scott students participate in the AVID college-readiness programs, learn from local professionals and college recruiters on-site on “College and Career” days and adopt a PAC 12 college or university for their classroom to remind them daily: you can do this. Learn more about our college-readiness focus.

BUILD College Bound Families recognizes the important role of families to student success and offers intensive leadership development for parents of students who face the greatest barriers to attending and graduating college: people of color, immigrants and refugees, low-income families, and those who have never had a family member attend college. BUILD will give parents—with an emphasis on parents of rising GEAR UP 7th/8th and 10th/11th graders—the tools to work together in advocating for their children, navigating the school system, and increasing educational opportunities.  Participants share their experiences and learn from one another, while putting knowledge into collective action. 
Contact staff at build@interculturalorganizing.org to learn more about the program and to get involved.
