Portland Public Schools 2015 -2016 Calendar


Welcome to Skyline School!

Welcome to Skyline School!  We are a K-8 International Baccalaureate school settled on the top of the hills overlooking Portland and the Willamette Valley.  Our school is strongly supported by our parents and community.  We average over 4000 volunteer hours a year! This support translates into incredible learning experiences for our students.  As our students explore academic subjects and improve their skills, they do so in an environment that supports creativity, inquiry and open-mindedness.  Our committed staff creates a safe place for respectful and responsible learning, grounded in the IB philosophy for all students.  All of our K-5 classrooms are blended age to support peer-to-peer learning and deeper connections between students and teachers.  Our students participate in Physical Education, Music, Spanish and Technology every week.  Please contact the main office for further information and to set up a tour.
