Creative Science School

critical thinkers, courageous problem-solvers, compassionate community builders


Your child can begin at Creative Science School in kindergarten or transfer in at any grade level. There are typically 50 kindergarten slots available each year and a handful of spaces available in grades 1-8.

Information Nights

Information nights for the 2018-2019 school year will be announced in the late fall.

Because of the high demand, we cannot accommodate individual tours or classroom observations. Incoming Kindergarten families can sign up for school tours at our information session. Incoming 1st-8th grade families will have an opportunity to see the school during their information session.

How To Apply

Enrollment at Creative Science School is managed by the Portland Public Schools transfer process, which conducts a lottery for all transferring students. For further information on the transfer process, check the PPS website, or contact the Enrollment and Transfer Center, 503-916-3205. The school choice lottery opens in early February and continues for approximately one month (exact dates TBA).
