Our Thematic Multi-grade Classrooms

Grades 1-8 are organized into three 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.



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



Student progress is measured using the NWEA MAP Growth three times a year. The tests are administered in the fall, winter, and spring of each school year. The results help our teaching staff create a learning plan that meets the child’s individual needs. The test measures student growth throughout the school year. "MAP Growth assessment is the most trusted and innovative assessment for measuring achievement and growth in K–12 math, reading, and language usage. It provides teachers with accurate, and actionable evidence to help target instruction for each student or groups of students regardless of how far above or below they are from their grade level.  It creates a baseline for progress monitoring throughout the year" (NWEA 2021). This tool helps teachers monitor and support growth based on each individual child's learning needs.
