A K-8 school for families who want their children to learn problem-solving skills in a constructivist environment.

Creative Science School is a focus option Portland Public School for children in grades K-8. Students are encouraged to be independent thinkers, learners, and problem solvers. Our students develop and demonstrate the ability to create questions, formulate solutions, and apply results throughout their lives. At CSS, we believe that children learn best when they explore and discover on their own, constructing their knowledge through hands-on experiences and problem solving. Find out about our classrooms, community, and groups here, and then attend one of our information nights.
