My first grader spent four years at Childpeace Montessori and then a couple months at Portland Village School before enrolling at Chief Joseph at the beginning of this calendar year. He is a kid with challenges and his experiences at school up to this point were of failure, punishment and administrative ineptitude. I just can't say enough good stuff about Chief Joseph. The principal is engaged, charismatic and successful in inspiring both kids and parents to their best. The teachers we've had experience with are experienced, skilled, compassionate and successful. Our child came in reading below grade level and he has advanced three reading levels in four months. More importantly, there is a cohesive team there that supports him and makes sure he has the opportunity for success and happiness there.
My child is excelling in the reading program there. The principal is engaged and the parent involvement is superb.
Chief Joseph is a great school! We have a very involved PTA, principle, teachers, and staff.
It really is a jewel of the north! A small school with dedicated, supportive teachers.
This school a wonderful. My daughter has been at Chief Joseph for two years and is already reading chapter books- in kindergarten. The teachers care about each and every student and many volunteer their time for after school programs.
