Open School is a non-profit organization that provides rigorous college-prep programs for middle and high school students who hold tremendous promise, but need something different than a traditional educational environment. For more than 40 years, Open School has been operating in North Portland. It has now expanded its impact by opening a new school in East Multnomah County. The facility includes 13 classrooms, administrative support offices, and a community space. The school shares a gymnasium, cafeteria, and soccer fields with the neighboring Boys & Girls Club, which opened in the summer of 2017.
