Curriculum


A National Design: G. E. Peters Adventist School bases its curriculum on the North American Division Curriculum Guides developed over decades by skilled teachers across North America.  Additionally, since GEP is part of a worldwide sisterhood of schools, we have the advantage of national-level curriculum committees that search for the most fitting textbooks on the market.  The curriculum committees create their own materials if suitable books cannot be found.
 
Provides Continuity: Our curriculum is well-designed to provide continuity from grade to grade, while allowing teachers autonomy to use their professional skills and good judgement.  In this way, each teacher designs learning experiences to fit the abilities and interests of their students.
 
Fosters Excellence in Learning:  G. E. Peters teachers are always looking for ways to improve their craft.  Equipped with a good curriculum and professional autonomy they utilize various methods to help each child succeed.  Some methods are cutting-edge while some are time-tested.  The combination of strategies help our students learn and succeed.
 
Teaching of Doctrine:  A frequently asked question is: "How much doctrine do you teach?"  In early grades, the Bible classes focus mainly on the stories of the Bible and the life of Christ.  In the higher grades Adventist doctrine is presented and discussed.  Families of other faiths embrace our Christ-centered, values-based approach and find our teachers to be understanding of varying points of view.
