Our Mission

The Village Free School is a private, independent, non-profit school in Portland, Oregon. We operate democratically and provide traditional academics alongside holistic, informal character building for children ages 5 to 18.

Most Likely to Succeed

We're excited to host a viewing of Most Likely to Succeed, a film that explores innovation in today's education landscape. Details can be found in the flyer here; please join us October 12 as we continue to ask the question: What if school were different?
