As an IB World School we believe in a whole-child approach to learning at GIS Portland. Through the framework of the IB Primary Years Programme and language immersion in German or Chinese, students at GIS are globally-minded, adaptive, independent thinkers who grow to become lifelong learners.

In this immersion setting, our youngest students play, explore, and discover in a hands-on, inquiry-based environment. Kindergarteners build upon this experience with a continued emphasis on curiosity and play while learning to be more confident and independent learners.

Our grade school students benefit from integrated learning opportunities across their subject areas. It’s an educational experience that is academically challenging, cross-cultural, and encourages curiosity, empathy, cooperation, and bilingualism.

If you are looking for a holistic approach to teaching, along with learning another language GIS may be the school for your child. Come take a tour and see who we are.

The OES curriculum is rooted in inquiry and exploration, with students (Pre-K through Grade 12) engaging deeply in hands-on, discussion-based, project-oriented learning inside and outside the classroom. Students receive a solid academic foundation in core subjects and benefit from small class sizes where everyone is known and appreciated as an individual. Whether in academics, music, art, world languages, or athletics, students take an active, empowered role in their education.

Time is intentionally set aside for regular gathering and reflection to consider the world beyond our campus. We educate toward a larger purpose: inclusion and respect, understanding and compassion, service and social justice, meaning and commitment.

Our 59-acre campus in Southwest Portland includes wetlands, nature trails, and athletic fields where students can explore and play. Learn more about OES at www.oes.edu and sign up for Open House.
