We deeply appreciate her effort of studying hard and making her way to the next level in life!

Amazing young lady. Many family members and friends came by to congratulate her and everyone was out in the halls to clap for her.

We hope more students will be on the way to graduate and be successful in their next journey!

Amazing Art Pieces!

Our Community School students are excellent and very skilled in many things, but among them, we want to boast and be proud for our art class students!

Here are just some of the master pieces and we feel the time and effort put in there!

We have been waiting for this!

It was such a nice feeling to have students and staff come all together to share the scholarship opportunities and hear from the principal, especially his childhood experiences!

Just made us feel so good to have the Community!

Continuing Education for Young Parents (CEYP)

Dear BSD students who have children aged 6 weeks to 3 years!

There are openings in our Beaverton School District's Continuing Education for Young Parents (CEYP) infant and toddler childcare center. Any BSD student who has a child aged 6 weeks to 3 years is eligible to access free quality childcare at the Little Mustangs Learning Center (LMLC) at Merlo Station Campus.

Any BSD student at any school may send their child to the LMLC, although many students with children in the Learning Center choose to attend Community School in order to be close to their children while completing their educational goals and enjoying their high school experience. Bus transportation to Merlo Station Campus is provided for students and their babies. In addition, CEYP students may benefit from:

  • College, career and job counseling
  • Access to community resources and donations
  • Personal and family counseling
  • Free on-site School-Based Health Center which can provide well-baby checks, immunizations, general health concerns, contraception counseling and services, etc.
