Community Transitional School


Community Transitional School is a non-profit, private Pre-K-8th grades 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

During the 2017-2018 school year CTS taught 232 children at extreme risk for school failure. Despite the high mobility rate of their families who move throughout the Portland metro area, as well as the greater Multnomah County, our students had a 92 percent daily attendance average last school year.

“Community Transitional School is not only a school for learning. It is a school where you can have fun, meet friendly people and can catch up on things you have not learned. CTS may be a small school, but it is a big community where everyone fits in.”

—Sara, 2018 8th grade graduate of CTS, now a freshman at De La Salle North Catholic High School
