About Our School


Mission Statement

It is our school’s aim to create experiences that foster a lifelong love of learning in a safe and secure environment where all abilities and talents are honored and accepted. We do that by creating an environment in which students can better meet the various academic, spiritual, social, and physical demands asked of them in the classroom and nurture them to attain their highest level of achievement. Our goal is to educate the whole person by meeting the unique needs of all students. It is our desire to teach respect for the dignity of all human beings, to build character, to nurture thinkers rather than mere reflectors of others’ thoughts, to promote loving service rather than selfish ambition, to ensure the maximum development of each individual’s potential, and to embrace all that is true, good, and beautiful. 

Our Philosophy
The Forrest Ward Memorial 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 Forrest Ward Memorial School operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
