The Marylhurst School is an independent, progressive education community in West Linn. Founded in 1972, we serve 200 children in preschool through eighth grade. We embrace the creativity, questions and risk taking of childhood in a supportive, hands-on environment. • Small classes, each with two full-time teachers who inspire learning and build relationships so that every child is truly known. • Experiential, thematic studies which reflect our community of learners and the limitless opportunities in the world around us. • Child-centered curriculum infused with poetry, gardening, art, science, tinkering, creative writing, music and play, all rooted in developmentally appropriate practice. • Welcoming community that celebrates the unique contributions of students, families and faculty. The Marylhurst School: honoring the journey of each child.
