Chuuk

Mission

Provide a quality education in an Adventist atmosphere to students from Pre-K to 10th grade. 

Description

The main island has a pre-k to 12th grade school with 150 students. The elementary teachers spend the entire day with their students and teach every subject. 6th - 12th grades teachers teach one or more subjects while the students rotate classrooms. Maintenance workers are involved with many aspects of maintenance and grounds work. They use whatever tools are provided by the school, which are enough for most jobs.  The campus is located next to the most famous resort on Chuuk. SMs are able to spend time there, go snorkeling, and scuba dive among sunken ships and planes from WWII.
