Data Sources

Private school data is voluntarily self-reported for the 2016–2017 academic year. Schools offering only preschool and/or kindergarten were excluded, as were schools that did not complete Portland Monthly’s survey.

*What about public schools?
Portland Monthly has published similar grids for public schools in the past. But with large districts like Portland Public and Beaverton Public experiencing ongoing boundary shifts, annexations, grade reconfigurations, and other changes, available data on many schools would be out-of-date or of limited use. Information on language immersion, focus options, magnets, and other special programs at public schools can be found on district websites. Recent state report cards and standardized test results are available at oregon.gov/ode. (The percent of students meeting state benchmarks often shows a correlation with a school’s family income levels; find neighborhood median incomes in Portland Monthly's real estate coverage. City stats are here; suburb stats are here.)
