Cascade Mountain School is a residential STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) program for middle and high school students located in the Columbia River Gorge (an hour drive from Portland, Oregon). Cascade Mountain School is dedicated to cultivating individual responsibility and personal growth; fostering creation of community and understanding of the natural world; and excelling in scientific inquiry, systems thinking, and sustainability studies.
