Welcome to Portland Adventist Elementary School (PAES), an outstanding private Christian elementary school founded in Portland, Oregon, in 1885. This campus is a place where Christ is exalted and students excel under the dedicated and passionate leadership of an outstanding core of Christian teachers and staff. Our teachers are well educated and experienced in the teaching techniques necessary to meet the needs of your children and to lead them through a highly successful elementary education. We offer you more than just a school…we offer you a dynamic “home” for the many formative years of your child’s development. We will provide you with the best possible opportunities for your child’s intellectual stimulation and growth. PAES has implemented a rich, technologically supported curriculum. Our school is distinguished by a focus on academic excellence and personalized relationships within a Christian context. A fortified foundation has been established for your child’s future success in the 21st century. Children arrive at school excited to meet their friends and to engage in the daily learning experiences. They exude energy and enthusiasm throughout the school day. I would love to invite your child to become a member of our PAES family.
Portland Adventist Elementary is part of the world-wide Seventh-day Adventist school system, the largest Protestant school system in the world, with over 7,000 elementary, secondary and college campuses. I invite you to discover more about our school through exploring these pages, requesting an information packet, or by contacting us for a tour of our beautiful 19 acre campus. I look forward to meeting you soon.
