The 2012 Portland Public Schools (PPS) Bond was the culmination of significant community engagement and input. Public Design Workshops provided students and school communities the opportunity to help shape the master and schematic designs. Design Advisory Groups and Master Planning Committees comprised of students and community stakeholders provided feedback for the PPS Design Teams.
The modernized Franklin High School is a significant step forward in transforming Portland Public School’s facilities into next generation learning environments. The learning spaces have been modernized, reconfigured, and updated with a focus on indoor environmental quality, sustainability, and historic preservation.

Portland Public School, Faubion School + Concordia University, A 3 to PhD Community received honorable mention for the Energy Trust of Oregon High Performance Awards Category and a finalist in the Education Category for TopProjects Awards.
The new 135,000-square-foot inclusive education facility represents a unique partnership between Portland Public Schools, Concordia University (CU), Faubion School, Trillium Family Services, basics (formerly Pacific Foods of Oregon) and Kaiser Permanente. Bora Architects worked with these entities to design a pioneering facility that co-locates CU’s College of Education and the Faubion School, providing both hands on learning for emerging educators and a wealth of mentors and tutors for young students. After three years of planning which included a multitude of community input sessions and a design that was guided by a community design advisory group, plus nearly two years of construction, Faubion is now garnering national attention as a ground-breaking model for addressing public education. The vibrant student population is already thriving and growing.
PPS and CU created a new academic curriculum to serve this goal: 3 to PhD®. As the first campus in the nation to implement this program, Faubion will serve up to 800 PK-8 children. Concordia University Portland’s College of Education is fully integrated, preparing future educators within a diverse and urban school. Additionally, the building includes spaces for essential wrap-around services: a student health and wellness clinic (partially staffed by students from CU’s College of Health and Human Services), reduced-price food market, offices for non-profit social service agencies, and community education spaces.
