Works Here: As an administrative staff member at Northwest Academy, I can honestly say that is has been one of my favorite places to work in my arts administration career! I love working directly with our students and creative staff/faculty and staff are treated with respect and given ample opportunity to grow and learn. Parents have been wonderful and building relationships with them over the years has been a highlight!

Alum: I am a recent graduate, and I think Arts and Communication Magnet Academy has fallen short on several occasions. Select teachers and directors are frankly not very good at teaching, the school offers few advanced placement classes, some arts programs revived uneven amounts of funding, the administrative and office workers are frequently rude, and I'd say the school is not very good at preparing students for college. All of that being said, some arts programs are excellent, the performance venues are wonderful spaces, and the school culture itself is very strong and unique.

Parent: SSA is a great school. We have seen the seeds of biblical truth which SSA has sown into our daughter’s lives. The school education and curriculum is great, and the students learn all about godly characters like respect, honor and integrity. One area which is not as efficient in the school is extracurriculars. You won’t find as many as public school, but nevertheless, SSA is a great school with wonderful teachers, curriculum and lots of parent involvement. We are proud to be an SSA family!

Junior: My experience at Jefferson High school is amazing, everything about it is good, We have a dance program which is also amazing. So if you like to dance I would say go to Jefferson High school. At Jefferson, we also have sports and also a Biotech program. Like any other school, we have girls volleyball, boys football, boy and girl soccer, and baseball. The Biotech program is a program, that works with science, when I was in the program we went to middle schools in Portland and we taught 6-8 grades about science and how to build things. We have field trips to OHSU (Oregon Health & Science University) and we work with chemicals. Also at Jefferson, we have a middle college and in the middle college program we take PCC (Portland Community College) classes and we are required to take classes from PCC to graduate so basically you would have college credits when you graduate college. We have PCC classes because we are right by one of the PCC locations.

Senior: A3 is basically a school where you focus in arts. At A3 people are very accepting and teachers are very supportive. I decided to go to A3 because it seemed like a good place to go and it has many opportunities in art. When I decided to it was mostly for art and music. Do I regret going? The answer is no, because it has given me experiences that I wouldn't have expected in another highschool. Would I change anything? Nothing I can think of.
