"Where Christ is Exalted and Students Excel"

The Seventh-day Adventist Church recognizes each student's individual value as a child of God. Portland Adventist Elementary School is committed to excellence in Christian education while leading each student in a growing relationship with Christ.  Our commitment is to a balanced experience in the areas of spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional, and social development that will enable students to face the challenges of life and to contribute to society.

The vision we provide for our children depends on how we educate them today.  Their legacy of inheritance will be determined by our ability to deal with the present.  Our commitment to their future will only be realized when we inspire our children to achieve their greatest potential.
