School Open House Guide

OpenHouseGuide_720x358

Is your kid an artistea science geek, a future Mother Teresa— or all three? PDX has a school for that!

Finding the right school for your kid could be the biggest decision you’ll ever make as a parent. Their friends and their teachers will be some of their biggest influences, and the lessons learned will stay with them for a lifetime. There are tons of great choices in the Portland metro area, so do your homework. To truly take the pulse of a school, consider an in-person visit. This guide has open house information for private schools through the Portland area. They’re organized by date, with open houses first, then tours. 

Information in this guide is updated regularly, so please check back to see if a school you are interested in has added an open house.

Many schools offer tours in addition to open houses. Jump to our complete list here.
