  • Our Thematic Multi-grade Classrooms

    Grades 1-8 are organized into two groups based on their individual needs. The instruction is thematic. This means that one theme runs through all subject areas of learning. The themes are selected and based in the nationally recognized Adventist Standards.

    Reading and Math Groups are designed to help the student master skills outlined in their specific grade’s standards of learning. Our teachers use the Whole Brain approach which is an interactive learning style. Units of study are designed using the Understanding by Design model, which focuses on learning outcomes and practical application. Our teachers believe that true education harmoniously develops the child physically, mentally, and spiritually.

    Service

    Each month our students are given opportunity to serve in the local community. We strive to nurture the whole child. Part of this plan teaches them that serving others brings fulfillment and joy. It honors God and our neighbors.

    • Visiting people in Assisted Living Centers
    • Yard Maintenance
    • Singing for local organizations
    • Collecting food, household materials, and clothing for the local Community Service Center
    • Sharing Jesus’ love and our hope in His soon return

    Assessment

    Each year student progress is measured using the nationally norm Iowa Test of Basic Skill (ITBS). The tests are administered in the fall of each year, not at the end of the school years. The results help our teaching staff create a learning plan that meets the child’s individual needs. The test measures student growth annually and creates a baseline for progress monitoring throughout the year. Our teachers meet personally and regularly with parents to discuss their child’s progress.

    Personal Note

    Our Staff is excited and busy preparing for the 2016-2017 school year. This year’s theme is “Around the World in 180 days. Each quarter we will celebrate our units of study with a theme day. Parents are invited to participate with their child in an interactive learning experience.

    This year we will study:

    • Accepting God’s Plan of Salvation and the Great Controversy
    • Medieval Europe and the Renaissance
    • The Industrial Revolution
    • Countries around the World from South America to Russia
    • Forces and Motion
