Message to families
This is in response to a post by a community member on December 11, 2015: On behalf of PCS, we are saddened to hear of your difficult experience in the 2000’s. We pray that you’ve been able in recent years to find a community where you feel loved and accepted. A few things have changed at PCS since you were here – we now have a Counseling department as a resource to students who may be struggling with anxiety, depression, or other issues – we’ve found this has indeed filled a great need. As for our teachers and administrators, they are highly qualified, dedicated professionals who truly love and value their students and work hard to help them succeed. We acknowledge that our high academic standards may be a challenge for some students; our free tutoring and learning lab have helped many students succeed in areas where they formerly struggled. Student pregnancy is one situation that would be handled on an individual basis under our Student Conduct Code and is not grounds for automatic dismissal. Thank you for expressing your concerns; we appreciate having an opportunity to respond. Portland Christian offers a positive solution to families seeking an alternative to public education – we’d love for you to come visit us!
