Applications are now available for the

2023 – 2024 school year!

Spaces in Portland Forest School are extremely limited to maintain our small class sizes and uniquely low ratios. If you have any questions please email the office at

  • Step 1: We encourage you to attend one of our Open Houses. This will allow you to ask questions about our school as well as get to know the administration team and teachers. We ask that middle school and high school students attend the Open House with their parents so their questions are addressed as well.
  • Step 2: To apply, complete the application for your grade. Please note there is a $50 application fee required when the application is submitted.
  • Step 3:  For grade 1 and above we require transcripts from students’ current teacher(s) and school. When we have received the application and teacher evaluations and transcripts, your application will be reviewed for admission. The school will send an email with our decision.
  • Step 4: Students being admitted will receive an acceptance email, as well as an enrollment packet that includes a link to pay the deposit to reserve your student’s spot in the coming year’s class.

If you are interested in applying for the 2023-2024 school year, please fill out the enrollment form and send an email to
