The school is Christ driven and teaches the youth how to walk a life with Jesus. Teachers are dedicated to help students excel in their academics. Classroom sizes were small and gave students a lot of one-on-one time with the teacher. My experience was great, however I found that the faculty do be very disrespectful. While most teachers tried to focus on the development of students, others acted more like police. Looking for reasons to get a child in trouble. It was very disturbing to see a Christian school act curl towards children who didn't observers the school's religious views.

I have been attending Portland Adventist Academy for only about two years, yet it already feels like home to me. The teachers are some of the most loving, most compassionate people on the planet. Everyday I walk into the building I get this feeling of community rush over me. The school is small enough that everyone knows each other and respects each other. Other than an obvious lack of diversity, culture, and iffy food, I honestly love PAA and cannot recommend it enough for it's teachers, college readiness, and dedication to it's students.
The student body was just small enough to feel friendly, but large enough to where I didn't feel like I was stuck with the same people all the time. The teachers are sweet and easy to talk to, and the students are like that too!
