Our school is a treasure. My daughter came here from public school and since has thrived academically as well as socially. She came as a 3rd grader. We felt welcome by students, staff and other parents. When I drop her off in the morning, I always leave with a smile knowing she is truly accepted and respected there. We are Catholic and truly enjoy all the community outreach the students do as well as the various masses. We also are lucky to have a very diverse school. I feel very grateful my daughter is learning how to be a good student and a good citizen. I feel kids leave here very ready for high school.

This school is SE Portland's best kept secret. It is truly one of the best values in a top notch education you can find in Portland. Students who finish k-8 here are some of the best prepared in all of Portland for high school - almost all are put into advanced classes, even at tough schools like Jesuit and St. Mary's. And they do this without being exclusive - they have high standards and help kids achieve them. But more importantly, is how nice they come out. The school atmosphere is very kind - I don't know how else to put it - and the kids care a lot about helping, and doing service in the community. St. Ignatius is producing model citizens. This sounds so flowery, but I really believe this to be true.

St. Ignatius is a very good quality school. I am not a member of the parish nor am I catholic and I wouldn't spend a cent to send my children there if I didn't feel I was getting all I could ask for. On the subject of being non-catholic: my family has always felt as a welcome and complete member of the school.

My two children attended this wonderful school. They have high qualified teachers who are warm and welcoming. The school have created a supporting community. The school is small, but has all the curriculums of a big schools with arts, band, PE with gym, and much more.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
