School Notes

The mission of Scappoose Adventist School is to educate the whole child by maximizing their full potential in Christ. 

The Creator`s design is for "whole person" development mental, physical, emotional and spiritual and that, no matter what your religion or philosophy of life, the longer a child attends Scappoose Adventist School, the more a child will demonstrate:  

  • A Spirit-filled life with service acts toward others
  • Academic excellence and critical thinking skills
  • Leadership through personal gifts and abilities
  • Integrity-based decisions and healthy choices. 

We believe that with an affirming environment supported by a committed community and staff, who provide an educational experience that pursues whole person development, students will excel as scholars, community leaders, and servants of Christ.

I am so happy that we found this school. It is exactly the community I was looking for, for my son and my family. Parents are encouraged (and expected) to be involved in classroom activities and school-wide activities. My son is valued for the individual that he is. Each teacher knows him by name. His K-1 class has a guaranteed 14:1 teacher-student ratio. Because of the small class size, the kids have really built a family at the school. They have a class pet (a cat!), celebrate birthday parties, go on monthly field trips (We have already gone to Mt. St. Helens, OMSI and bowling!). In the winter the kids can choose from Skiing/snowboarding on Mt. Hood or Ice Skating at Lloyd Center. In the spring they do swimming lessons at the pool. These are opportunities that my kids wouldn't find at another school in this area.
