    "SBJA has become a pillar for Christian education in the community. I'm sorry to see someone whose child hasn t attended SBJA with such a negative view of the multigrade system & unwarranted assumption that teachers sit around & do nothing. I know my child benefits from being in a classroom with upper grades: he's learning well at his grade level while picking up on advanced subjects taught to older students, simultaneously. Other parents have also seen tremendous improvement in their children's learning, including those who were told by teachers in other schools that they had a learning disability. Teachers at SBJA are well equipped not just to teach but to identify the learning capabilities of a child & giving all students an opportunity to develop their unique skills & learning at their ideal pace. Ive observed most classrooms during my child's time at the school & I cant say any of the teachers are ever sitting down. Due to the increased pace of teaching multigrades I see that once teachers have completed a lesson for one grade they immediately move on to the next. I cant fathom how a school like SBJA has grown if teachers are sitting idly all day."

    "I am well acquainted with the teachers at SBJA. Each of them are committed to educational excellence and work hard to motivate students to high achievement levels. Multi-grade education at SBJA takes place at over 900 schools on the K-8 level operated by the Seventh-day Adventist school system in the NAD. In a study conducted by The Center for Research on K-12 Adventist Education which included over 51,000 students, the results indicated that students in Adventist schools scored above the national average on standardized achievement tests at all grade levels and in all subjects. Another finding is that students attending such schools grew both in achievement and ability at a rate higher than the national average and the more years students attended Adventist schools, the higher their growth in both achievement and ability. Although there is room for growth in any school, I feel confident that each teacher at SBJA is well qualified to teach in each subject area. In addition to this, they attend professional growth meetings, are certified teachers, and have good classroom management skills. They are helping to fulfill the mission of SDA education -academically and spiritually."

    "There is only one teacher for different grade levels. Example, in grades one, two, three, all of these students share only one classroom and one teacher. The one and only teacher just give them worksheets per grade level. I can not comprehend how these students gain valuable learning where there is only one teacher and one classroom. The teachers most of the time read the textbooks ( reading is not teaching). Yes, they are very nice teachers, but they are ineffective. Their teaching strategies will not work for me if I were their student. I will never send my children here because I feel that they will not learn anything. The teachers most of the time just sit down while teaching, there is no participation or engaging students. Teachers and students do not have a science laboratory and their computers and other technology are obsolete. The way the teachers teach is they just give a worksheet for students to answer and most of the time students just write on their notebooks. The school can improve if they hire more efficient teachers, add a science laboratory, and update their computer and other technological resources. They should not sit down while teaching most of the time."
