Administrative Goals and Philosophy
Respect is an important key in the development of positive relationships and it is our utmost goal to demonstrate the notion that respect is a gift that teachers and students give to each other. By practicing fairness and consistency, and disciplining with dignity, we model respect toward one another and teach Christ’s compassion through example. As part of the daily interchange, students are taught how to communicate effectively with adults and peers when conflicts or difficulties arise. Basic skills such as how to make “I” statements are practiced. In the classroom we learn that it is the responsibility of each member of the class to support each other member to achieve success. The students and teacher must become a learning team.
A cheerful welcoming school environment also helps to set a mood for learning. Smiles and courtesy are key components of respect. Our administrative/ teaching staff are constantly accessible to listen with an understanding heart. It is our goal, as we share ideas, pinpoint areas of need, and seek solutions that our school will become a better place for all.
It is the prayer of the administrative and teaching staff, here at the Gettysburg Adventist Christian School that Christ will be seen in our school, that children will thrive and learn as they fulfill God’s purpose for life in this world and the world to come.
