The doors of a north Portland school closed Wednesday for good.
In April, the Portland Public School Board voted to close Harriet Tubman Leadership Academy for Women because of a budget shortfall.
The academy served students in grades six through 12.
There were a series of events planned for their last day, including a big breakfast for students and faculty and then a goodbye assembly.
Sierra Byers' daughter was a sixth-grader at the academy. She says that this has been a stressful and emotional time for her daughter, but she has stayed strong.
"We've tried hard to show her confidence and show her it's possible to move on and try to maintain friendships and be positive," Byers told FOX 12.
Board members say the students will have the option of going to a neighborhood school, transferring to a different school or going to Jefferson Middle College together as a group.
The school board also voted to consolidate Humboldt and Boise-Eliot schools.
