School Notes

  • The original Seventh-day Adventist school in Paradise was established in 1908, with the goal of providing high quality Christian education to children in our community. Over the years the name and location has changed, but the purpose remains the same. As a part of the second largest private education system in the world, our curriculum meets or exceeds public school standards, teachers hold current education certification in their field of teaching, and students learn in a variety of ways through field trips, lab experiences, traditional classroom experiences, music performance, and sports teams.
