Open School’s mission is to lead an educational community based on equity, advocacy and academics. We support marginalized students on their journey to break limiting beliefs, learn to navigate systemic oppression, and build their life goals.
Bottom Line for Portland
This past school year, we served 509 students in seventh to 12th grade. While schools across the nation struggle with a persistent “achievement gap,” Open School’s programs have no disparities between students of color and white students in grades, test scores, graduation rates or discipline incidents.
The Collins Foundation will match all new and increasing donations to Open School through the Give!Guide.
“I owe a lot to Open School. It was the first time I felt in my heart that adults believed in me—and that’s a powerful thing.” —Drew Holguin, Open School graduate and Step Up program manager
