Hello fellow mamas and daddys,
I'm here to rave about our school, Ockley Green. Ockley Green is an Arts and Technology magnet school located in the Arbor Lodge neighborhood of North Portland. It is a K - 8 school offering an exciting cirriculum for it's students; including art, music, p.e., and dance! Unlike many schools, OG provides the students with up to 3 recess periods - which we feel is important for children to work off their extra energy. The staff and administration are fabulous. My son is a kindergartener and he is really blossoming at this school! Come and see for yourself at one of our open house events:
Feb 3: 1:00 pm
Feb 16th: 5:30pm
A little about us: we are 12 year residents of the Piedmont neighborhood in North Portland. Last year we went through the lottery process, although I've been going through the school selection process since giving birth to my son! I suspect my husband and I are no different than any of you in that we want our son to have an enriching school experience that is both challenging and nurturing. We discussed at length the pros and cons of public, charter and private options and ultimately made Ockley Green our number 1 choice in the lottery because of the curriculum. At the end of the lottery we had 3 choices and we chose Ockley Green.
Thanks for your time; I wish you all luck in the lottery system. I'm thankful that we have choices!
