My family is moving to the Portland, Ore area this summer. The boys (will be 8th grade and 5th grade) have attended A rated schools in the past and made outstanding grades. What area that has very good schools should they be looking to reside in Oregon? He works at Google and they expect a good education.

I'd recommend reading Sarah Rivera's article "Moving? How to Find a Great School Near Your New Home," which offers some helpful advice about how to get your bearings education-wise in a new city as well as general tips for finding a school that best fits your family's needs.

Noodle's K-12 search engine is a useful tool for finding and comparing schools in a particular city or neighborhood, and Noodle's school report cards allow you to see how each school scores in the areas of educational quality, climate, and student outcomes. As Sarah mentions in her article, education statistics can also be found online through school districts, local and state education departments, and through the U.S. Department of Education's Nation's Report Card program.

For more Portland-specific information, take a look at the following articles which provide ranking information for schools at both the city and state level:

Hope this helps!
