Thank You

Having teachers and staff that actually cared about me and challenged me to set and achieve goals made all the difference. I was lost, they helped me find my real self.

Positive Impact

As soon as Malachi started at Park we began to see positive changes in him, his confidence began to grow.  For the first time, he actually like going to school. His academic and reading performance greatly improved after just one year. Park helped him recognize his potential by highlighting his strengths and encouraging him to keep trying.

Craig Lowery - Why A School for Dyslexia

Park Academy is a college preparatory school for students challenged with dyslexia and other language related learning differences. Our extraordinarily committed staff offers educational support to students whose needs have not been met in a traditional school setting.

Students come from all over the Portland metropolitan area and represent a variety of skills and learning profiles. The reading curriculum is developed around research-based, multisensory methodologies. These instructional approaches address students’ learning differences through auditory, visual, and kinesthetic modalities.

Read Craig Lowery's Blog on "Who Does Park Academy Serve"

“We have found a great deal of success with our focus on dyslexia in our lower school program and find that we can serve a slightly broader range of learning differences in our high school program. No matter what their identified learning struggle(s) might be, we can continue to help them learn about themselves and feel confident in their ability to self-advocate and use their knowledge, talents, and tools to be confident learners.”
