About Portland

Portland, Oregon’s largest city, is located at the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette rivers, in the shadow of snow-capped Mount Hood. It’s known for its parks, bridges and bicycle paths, as well as for its eco-friendliness and its microbreweries and coffeehouses. Iconic Washington Park encompasses sites from the formal Japanese Garden to the Oregon Zoo and its railway. The city hosts thriving art, theater and music scenes. Cedarwood takes full advantage of Portland's proximity to Mount Hood, the Oregon Coast and the high mountain desert of Central Oregon through its experiential learning programs in each grade.

Portland is also home to a rich anthroposophical community that includes several Waldorf schools, anthroposophical doctors and a branch of the Anthroposophical Society. The city of Portland offers wonderful cultural opportunities, while nearby Mount Hood and the Columbia River Gorge capture the splendor of the natural world.
