About Us

>Home >About Us

Welcome to the Mansfield Seventh-day Adventist School!

We are a grade K-8 elementary school that is part of the worldwide Seventh-Day Adventist education system. We operate a comprehensive K-8 grade program in two unique multi-grade classrooms. Our staff is licensed and certified through both the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists and the State of Ohio.


About the School

  • We are a small, accredited, multi-grade (K-8) Christian School.

  • Although small, we have excellent facilities, including: two well-resourced classrooms, full-sized gymnasium, kitchen facilities, libraries, playground, playing field, computers, and digital whiteboard.

  • With our low student-to-teacher ratio (two certified teachers and a teacher’s aide), students receive more individualized attention and an education that meets their unique needs.

  • The multi-grade classroom fosters a family atmosphere that helps children develop responsibility and excellent social skills.

  • Parents are valued partners in their child’s education.

  • We hold a student-centered philosophy of teaching as we help our students develop socially, emotionally, academically, and spiritually.

What sets us apart?

Growing spiritually

We exist to help students grow in their love for Jesus. While spiritual growth can’t be measured and quantified with numbers, we do see it happening every day. It starts with our commitment to making Christ the center of all we do––not just the subject of a single Bible class. And it continues through our focus on the Bible as the sole guide for our beliefs and behavior as Protestant Christians. We invite you to visit our campus and experience how our teachers and staff model their love for God and nurture it in our students.

Growing academically

Our goal is to develop Christians with wisdom, not just knowledge. So we’ve structured our academic program to put God first and we find that, like Adventist schools of all sizes across the country, this results in students who grow academically at a higher rate than their peers in other schools (see the next paragraph). It really is true that when we “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, all these things will be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33) To learn more about the specific results of our school, schedule an Education Success Consult with our principal.

Students in Adventist schools outperform. In a three-year study of 51,000+ students in Adventist schools (kindergarten through high school), researchers documented that they outperformed the national average.  At all grade levels. In schools of all sizes. And in all subjects.

Students in Adventist schools overachieve. Additionally, researchers compared student performance on standardized tests with what would be predicted based on their Cognitive Abilities Test scores, and found they performed above what would be predicted.

Students in Adventist schools gain even more with time. One of the most dramatic findings is that students who transferred to Adventist schools saw a marked improvement in test scores. Furthermore, the longer students are in Adventist schools, the better their achievements and abilities.

Growing physically

Making healthy choices is a way of honoring our bodies as the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19). And plenty of research documents the importance of healthy bodies in developing healthy brains. So we include learning about taking care of our bodies with daily exercise, good sleep, healthy eating, and more. To see how we integrate wise lifestyle choices into our curricula, come visit our campus.

Growing socially

Loving and serving others is part of God’s plan for each of us and something we practice daily.  As we interact with each other here at school and as we practice service in our community, we are guided by Paul’s words, “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” (Ephesians 4:2) While we are not perfect, we are constantly aiming to be more Christ-like with each other and to serve our community.  Come see how this influences our students with a visit to our campus.
