Meet Our School Partners
Individual high schools in the Portland Metro region identify and recruit 20-24 students to attend the three-day retreat at Camp Collins in Gresham, Oregon. After the completion of the weekend experience, students attend four follow-up sessions at their schools. The program culminates in a graduation ceremony to acknowledge and celebrate the growth and accomplishments of the teens and adult volunteers.
Full Circle currently partners with five schools across three counties in Oregon and southwest Washington.

La Center High School
LA CENTER, WASHINGTON
La Center High School is a dynamic educational institution where the staff is motivated to create lessons that inspire learning. Teachers are focused on student to student interactions, in-depth discussions and questions that raise the cognitive demand and a strong learning trust that is established with our student body.
Each student entering our school chooses a ‘Pathway’ that helps them determine their personal goals for post high school. One of our goals is to prepare all students for their future whether it is attending college, trade school, military and/or other forms of work. We help build confidence, responsibility and ownership in each individual.
Fir Ridge High School
Fir Ridge Campus is an alternative school campus of David Douglas High School. Alternative doesn’t mean less or easier at Fir Ridge–it means smaller and more supportive. Fir Ridge students are bright, capable leaders-in-training; they just happen to thrive in a smaller setting, or may need extra support to make up credits for various reasons. Fir Ridge students are expected to complete high quality work, keep attendance at 90% or higher and approach academic learning with a growth mindset. Fir Ridge offers students a smaller classroom environment, opportunities for additional credit and college/career counseling. When Fir Ridge students graduate, their level of learning and skill are as high as that of all DDHS students, and they should be fully prepared for success in college and career.
Arts & Tech High School
Arts and Technology High School is a dynamic learning community that supports the success of our diverse student population. All learners collaborate with staff to develop and commit to a personalized education and social/emotional support plan to ensure academic success.
