Kindergarten - 8th Grades
Friendship Adventist School & Child Developement Center believes that aside from parents, teachers frequently are the most significant adults in young children’s lives. Therefore, we deliver a quality kindergarten program that is staffed with caring teachers who have faith in every child’s potential to achieve and succeed.
Kindergarten children are active, curious learners who need adequate space, a variety of materials, and large blocks of time in which to try out their ideas. Kindergarten classrooms also affect children’s interests, level of interaction and involvement, initiative development, skill development, and overall attitude toward schooling and learning.
Multi-grade classrooms create a more authentic learning experience for our students, with emphasis being placed on reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies.We provide cooperative, small group learning opportunities which allow students to collaborate across grade levels for a more in-depth learning. Our accredited program includes high-quality curricula is designed to develop the critical thinking skills, creativity, reading comprehension and a strong mathematics foundation. Experienced and teachers work to develop character strengths such as self-control, perseverance, kindness, and honesty. Small class sizes ensure individual attention for each child.
What learners should know (content) and be able to do (skills), serve as the framework for curriculum development. Standards in NAD Seventh-day Adventist schools reflect the Adventist worldview across the K-8 curricula as well as the integration of national and provincial/state standards. The Adventist worldview accepts the Bible as the standard by which everything else is measured.
Four key concepts emerge from a biblical worldview that can be used as a lens for curriculum development, as well as informing the essential questions and big ideas of any content area: creation (What is God’s intention?), fall (How has God’s purpose been distorted?), redemption (How does God help us to respond?), and Re-creation (How can we be restored in the image of God?).
