Community Transitional School is a private nonprofit pre-K-8th grade school dedicated to educating children whose families are homeless or in transition throughout Portland. CTS provides at-risk children with a stable educational environment that promotes their personal and academic growth.
Bottom Line for Portland
Now in our 30th school year and more than 7,000 students later, CTS still believes breaking the cycle of generational homelessness begins with an education. Our students desperately need a school that attempts to level the playing field. CTS’s mission is to do just that. 3 R’s + behavior = A.
“An important thing I’ve learned at CTS is that the only person who can make my life better is me. I decide what is right or wrong and how I’m going to act. The teachers helped guide me onto the right path, I’m making the choice to walk down it.” —Jada, 2019 CTS graduate, now freshman at De La Salle North Catholic High School
