Great teachers that enjoy teaching and aren't in it for a paycheck. Project based learning. Students as a class decide on a subject to study with lots of field study and local business support.

This school has fantastic academics. Always rated high with test scores, but more importantly the kids learn by project method and approach. It's an intrinsic love of learning fostered through field study and the kids choosing the main theme of the semester. For example this fall was rocks for the kindergartners. They picked the subject and went on several field studies about rocks, to Mt. St. Helens, the geology museum, the fossil cartel. They did science experiments on rocks, they read about rocks, and they answered their deepest questions about rocks. That is the kind of learning you get in this school. Learning for the human soul.
The school is in downtown Portland and uses a public park playground. The primary concerns of most parents are vagrants in the area. The staff surveys the playground before students play and they have at least two staff members outside with students at all times.

As for bullying, the school's class meetings and positive discipline approach resolve most conflicts and teach students how to handle conflicts well.
