Click below to read our Curriculum Guide—a snapshot of Friends School of Portland’s academic program. In this guide, we have attempted to capture the essentials that guide our academic planning. The faculty considers a range of goals and principles as we plan for student learning—what to teach in a changing world, how to foster curiosity and engagement, how to weave reverence for life and joy of learning into the daily rhythm of our classes.
Since schools are by nature dynamic and evolving, the curriculum must be as well. This guide is not intended to be a strict curriculum outline, and in any given year, curricular goals may vary from what is printed here based on school-wide initiatives or faculty modifications.
For detailed information on specific concepts and skills taught at each grade level, please refer to the Friends School of Portland Learning Guidelines.
