Join us for weekly group informational meetings Tuesday afternoons at 1 p.m. and Thursday mornings at 10 a.m., at our Bend campus.
Oregon Family School provides a unique tuition-free learning environment where parents must actively participate in the academic development of their children.
The program is provided at no cost to our families.
State education funds are used to provide curriculum, staff members, and learning materials. We opened our doors in September 2018. In the first year of operation, the school will serve students in grades K-12.
The Mission of Oregon Family School is to prepare every child to have the knowledge, skills,
and resiliency to be successful in a rapidly changing world.
CORE VALUES: WE HONOR INDIVIDUALS AND RELATIONSHIPS
Oregon Family School (OFS) recognizes that students are individuals, possessing unique gifts and abilities. We recognizethat while it is important for students to develop skills they will need to make a full contribution in an ever-changing world, we believe it is a sacred trust to honor their unique gifts and abilities as we support them in the cultivation of their interests and strengths. This is especially crucial in middle and high school years, as students begin to chart their own paths toward adulthood.
The engine that drives our mission is the commitment to build and sustain strong relationships among stakeholders: students, parents, teachers, administrators, and the Board of Directors. It is through these connections that OFS is able to create an educational atmosphere where students and families are valued and parents are guided toward the best resources, methods, and materials for their children so that they thrive both personally and academically.
Oregon Family School offers multi-age classrooms with small class sizes:
15:1 student to teacher ratio for grades 1-12.
Our kindergarten classroom is limited to ten students.
Students attend their learning Community Day one time per week:
Choose either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.
9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Half-day attendance options are available.
Virtual options are available.
The other four days of the week are home-based where parents work with their children following an Individual Learning Plan with oversight by a certified teacher.
Oregon Family School will always strive to create a positive, supportive environment for our families. Our goal is to provide a wholesome, stimulating, and productive learning environment conducive to academic achievement and personal growth. We provide a pleasant and satisfying school situation within which your child(ren) can feel safe, cared for,
and supported by maintaining
these guiding principles:
Respect personal dignity and that of others.
Respect the rights and needs of ourselves and others.

Value our personal health and safety and that of others.
