Winterhaven School was founded on November 9, 1995 when the Portland Public Schools Board of Education approved a proposal for the establishment of the school. Ever since its inception, students in this K-8 focus option school have consistently produced outstanding test scores. The key elements of Winterhaven as a school with an emphasis on math and science are as follows:
- A flexible, creative, and rigorous learning environment geared to the level and rate of the individual student
- An accelerated curriculum which includes integrated projects, special interest classes, community service, and work-related experiences
- An emphasis on the development of intellect, character, and creativity with a fostering of a sense of belonging and community
