All Saints school has been providing quality Catholic education since 1936. We welcome families of all races, religions and cultural backgrounds. Currently, 460 students are enrolled across Pre-K – 8th grades with 25 students per class on average.
Nestled in the heart of Portland’s Laurelhurst neighborhood, All Saints is a community of families, educators, and other caring people who share a vision for our children’s future. Our mission is to cultivate a unified faith-centered community and in partnership with parents prepare students to be life-long learners who are responsible citizens committed to the values of Christ. Because of our philosophy, All Saints commits to communicating the Word of God, and promoting the elements of self-esteem, safety, responsibility, and courtesy within our school. We feel it is important to develop peacemakers and to foster outreach based on social consciousness and the virtues of justice and compassion. All Saints provides a quality academic education with a balanced curriculum beginning with fundamental skills and broadened through fine and applied arts. We are also committed to encouraging creative and critical thinking and developing decision-making abilities. Our graduates enter high school prepared to face future challenges with pride, assurance, and compassion.

The school is financially and spiritually supported by All Saints Parish. Principal Rose Rosinski, Melissa Haglund (Director of Curriculum) and Jon Myers (Dean of Students) lead the administrative team.
Our founders had a dream in 1917. The All Saints Parish was committed to having a parochial school, but it was not until September 1936 that the school opened under the direction of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, with 125 students in attendance. All Saints quickly gained a reputation for quality Catholic education, which has been our trademark for over seventy years.Today, our pastor, teachers, council, and administration instill a special spirit and provide a backbone of support. Our dream lives on in the hearts and minds of the faculty, the students, and the supporters of All Saints School.
This full-day program has a teacher/student ratio of approximately 1:11.

The school’s curriculum emphasizes scope and sequence, providing benchmarks at each grade level from Pre-Kindergarten to eighth grade. In addition to the traditional disciplines of religion, social studies, language arts, math, and science, we offer Spanish, art, music, physical education, computer literacy, and library skills. Our up-to-date science labs even include a greenhouse. Our art studio, library, and computer room further enhance our learning environment.
Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary defines chrysalis as “the capsule-enclosed state between caterpillar and butterfly during which the winged adult emerges. Anything in an undeveloped or transitory stage.”
For our middle school, the annual Chrysalis program provides a wonderful opportunity for students and faculty to investigate and explore new educational experiences not available through traditional classroom instruction.
The eighth-grade trip to Washington, D.C. allows students to experience U.S. History and geography up close and personal. The students visit a plethora of historical sites including Mt. Vernon, the Ford Theater, The Holocaust Museum, the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, Arlington National Cemetery, and the Smithsonian Institution.
Other grades enjoy diverse educational experiences. Grade six attends Outdoor School, Grade seven studies beach ecology while ensconced in our Yurt study site in Newport, Oregon. Our beach trip includes visits to Yaquina tide pools, the Coast Guard, Hatfield Marine Science Center labs, Oregon Coast Aquarium, and the Discovery Boat sea lab. Grades four and five enhance their study of Oregon and the westward movement by doing parts of the Lewis and Clark Trail, visiting Astoria, and journeying to Baker City to follow the Oregon Trail. The All Saints faculty is committed to providing hands-on educational opportunities that enhance our curriculum.
Creativity and the appreciation of the arts are fostered by the students’ participation in exhibitions of their work, concerts, musicals, and assemblies. Students learn to be disciplined artists as they learn to work with paint, charcoal, clay, and other media. They train their voices in music class, and have the opportunity to take instrumental music lessons on campus. The Christmas Pageant, Grandfriends day, and Spring Musical showcase their acting, singing, and dancing talents.
