Sabin School is a proud International Baccalaureate World School, which is fully accredited. This is the culmination of years of hard work by the teachers, administrators, students, and parents.


The Sabin community and the PTA have been instrumental in this effort by providing both financial, and volunteer support through the accreditation process.


Sabin's Mission Statement

Sabin School is part of a global community which is dedicated to fostering interdependence and intellectual curiosity for a lifetime of critical thinking by providing supportive teacher-student relationships, effective leadership and standards of excellence.



Since 2006, Sabin School PTA fundraising efforts have raised in excess of $1,000,000 to enrich and enhance the educational experience of students, teachers and families of Sabin School. The focal point of these fundraising efforts has been allocated to assist students of the highest academic need, and foster an inviting parent community for all families. We look forward to this continued partnership!

The Sabin School Foundation raises money to fund additional staff positions at Sabin School; additional staffing in our public schools can only be funded through a school foundation. 


The Sabin Foundation is a part of the Fund for Portland Public Schools, which is the foundation mechanism for the Portland Public Schools district. It also provides the infrastructure for the local Sabin School Foundation and other individual school foundations. The Fund for PPS manages the Portland Public School Equity Fund, whereby one-third of the funds raised through the Sabin Foundation (above an initial $10,000 threshold) go to the Fund for PPS. This equity fund is distributed among schools that are less able to raise money and helps close the achievement gap.

The Foundation Committee meets periodically throughout the year. Please join us to learn more about the foundation, ask questions, and support Sabin by sharing your time and talents with the foundation committee. 


What does the Sabin School Foundation support? 

  • The Sabin School Foundation supports additional staff, with a generous allocation from the Sabin School PTA.

  • Foundation funds have been used to provide art instruction, social studies, and a math specialist to help close the achievement gap.


All donations are 100% tax deductible, and go directly to the Fund for Portland Public Schools to support staffing needs at Sabin School.

Sabin SUN, a program of the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization (IRCO), aims to improve the lives of children, their families and the community by extending the school day and develop schools as "community centers" in their neighborhoods. SUN Community Schools strive to be a community "hub." They link with other community institutions, such as the libraries, parks and community centers, neighborhood health clinics and area businesses.


Since 2006, Sabin School PTA fundraising efforts have generously contributed to our Sabin SUN Community School Program resulting in the additions of programs such as the Garden Educator, AmeriCorps Community/Academic Engagement Coordinator, Literacy and Math Tutoring, and a wide range of (after school) SUN School class offerings and enrichments. The Sabin PTA partnership with our SUN School is unprecedented in the state of Oregon. -- We are proud to partner with our fabulous SUN School team!
