PAES has been a wonderful school for both my kids! We transferred from our neighborhood Portland Public School and it's been the best choice in every way!!! My kids are both thriving in ways that were never possible with PPS... it's well worth the drive to have my kids attend a school where their academic, social, spiritual and personal growth is prioritized.
My son does not go to this school but when I called to get information about the program and women I talked to on the phone was very rude, and laughed my questions. based on my phone interview I would not take my child there.
Add a second language and art to this school and you have perfection!!!! It has all the makings of a high quality private school! Just a bit further to go to be a 5 star school! Art and second language extremely important! Hope to see it at PAES one day soon.
