About Catlin Gabel School

Catlin Gabel School is an independent, coeducational college preparatory school in Portland Oregon. Catlin is a charter member of the Oregon Robotics Tournament and Outreach Program (www.ortop.org). We typically  field around 5-6 LEGO robotics teams each season and host LEGO tournaments through ORTOP.  Our LEGO robotics program starts in 5th grade and continues through Middle School as an after-school activity. Itís also integrated into Middle School science classes.

In High School, Catlin students take part in the nationwide FIRST Robotics competition (www.usfirst.org). In this competition students build robots from raw metals, electronics and plastics. Members of this team also mentor middle school robotics students.  In addition, Catlin Gabel is one of the few schools to offer four years of Computer Science in High School.
