Nestled within 59 wooded acres that includes natural wetlands, nature trails, and gardens in southwest Portland, Oregon Episcopal School is an independent, Pre-K to grade 12 day and boarding school offering an outstanding educational experience.


Since 1869, OES has prepared students for higher education and lifelong learning by inspiring intellectual, physical, social, emotional, artistic, and spiritual growth so students may realize their power for good as citizens of local and world communities.

The OES curriculum is rooted in inquiry and exploration, with students engaging deeply to absorb information and take an active, empowered role in the evolution of their education. Hands-on, discussion-based, project-oriented learning happens inside and outside the classroom, and each discovery leads to the next, driven primarily by the curiosity of OES students.

With an average enrollment of 870 students, including 60 boarding students, OES is a close-knit community where students feel safe, known, and valued. With an average class size of 16, and a student-to-faculty ratio of 7:1, students receive the attention they need to thrive. Learning and leadership opportunities abound in academics, music, art, world languages, and athletics, and students can pursue the subjects that intrigue them, all within a college preparatory curriculum. Unique among the school’s offerings is an international and domestic boarding program that adds cultural richness and diverse perspectives to the entire community.

“I think OES is the best school in the United States!” said sophomore Mimi P. “The people here are so kind and there are so many opportunities, whatever your passions and interests. I’ve already had more experiences here in one-and-a-half years than I would have had in four years at another high school because there is so much offered here. If you’re up for adventure and learning, I think OES is the perfect place.”

Attend an Information Evening on January 8 at 7 to 8:30 p.m. to explore the benefits of an OES education. The Admissions team, as well as some current parents, students, and faculty will be available in the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools to answer any questions you may have.  Application deadlines are January 21 for Pre-K through grade 5, and January 31 for Grades 6–12.
