Mission Statement 

The Ozark Adventist School family exists to show children Jesus, nurture their love for Him and others, teach them to think, and empower them to serve.

Our Philosophy 

Ozark Adventist School is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to provide a spiritually oriented education for children. A belief in the existence of the Creator God is fundamental in the philosophy of Seventh-day Adventist schools. We respect His divine authority and recognize His intervention in human affairs. We believe that true education develops the spiritual, mental, and physical powers of each student; preparing them for the joy of service in this life and for the higher joy of service in the life to come. To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to:
  • develop a personal relationship with God and his fellow men as stated in Matthew 2:37-39.
  • master the basic academic skills.
  • value labor, physical and mental, as the blessing God intended.
  • cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessing God intended.

The Ozark Adventist School operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

In our PreK and K-2 Montessori classrooms, we are responsive to individual differences in developmental stage, ability and interest. We strive to achieve a balance between guiding the child's learning and following their lead, honoring prior knowledge as new concepts are developed, and celebrating the intrinsic worth and value of each child. Children bring to the classroom different sets of beliefs, customs, traditions, values, and experiences.

The goal of our Montessori K-2 Classroom is to guide children into a loving relationship with God so they, through service, may reflect His love to others. Our teacher in this room is certified by the American Montessori Society (AMS).
