The parents are cliquish and elitist snobs don t bother socializing unless you can bring your trust fund. The school is filled with instructors and administrators who also act elitist and entitled. The school psychologist admitted to "letting down" our child and allowed him to be bullied. My child's ...  Read more

This school has allowed us as parents, to be harassed for being disabled, parking in a space that was " allegedly" purchased. I find this interesting, as all of the spaces are owned by the City of Portland. Not only were we berated in front of the school, there were children present. Then our ...  Read more

Meh. Very mixed bag with teachers... some are good, some are really awful. Lots of worksheets. Rigid old-school, top-down desks-in-a-row style and rules. The culture is friendly enough, but there is a distinct divide between neighborhood and non-neighborhood families. No sense that this is intentional, ...  Read more

Ainsworth did what any Elementary school should do, it made our kids love learning and love going to school. Art, music and PE are valued to create a well rounded curriculum and the Spanish Immersion program is wonderful if you can get in. It is a K-12 program that really challenges the students.

My child, Alix, learned more than she would've in any other school in Portland at Ainsworth. Parents are involved, teachers go with what's best for the students, and the students' behavior is excellent. Things that Ainsworth is notable for include its Spanish Immersion Program, the fifth grade Samba ...  Read more

Ainsworth is one of the wealthiest schools in Portland. The parents can be 'clique-ish', but they are very involved. The Buckaroo Carnival is a great event each year. The Spanish Immersion program is awesome, but it is by lottery. The school is located in an old historic school house with added 'portables' ...  Read more
