Seeking Public School Rankings
Time and time again, we receive emails from mamas and papas moving to Portland and seeking advice on neighborhoods (would you recommend yours?). To that end, parents moving to Portland wonder about our schools. Which schools are top-ranked and would you try to find a home close to those schools? There are the Oregon School Rankings, which is so daunting to me with the graphs and reams of data. There is also GreatSchools.Net, which ranks Portland public schools based on the 2005-2006 Oregon Statewide Assessment for reading, math, and science.
A friend is considering moving to Portland from Brooklyn writes:
I was wondering if there was a site that ranks schools in a way that is fairly easy to understand.
Mamas, share your wisdom and insight on Portland Public Schools!
