About Us

As a Christian school serving Grades TK-8, our purpose is to provide a broad educational opportunity in a spiritual environment, consistent with our Adventist Christian perspective. We believe that besides a sound academic preparation for life, there should be a nurturing of the whole student, by harmoniously developing the mental, physical, social and spiritual aspect of life.

Our mission is to provide a Christ-centered education where students can develop a closer relationship with Jesus. Biblical teaching, academic excellence, civic duty, and service are all emphasized in a safe environment where students can learn.

Des Moines Adventist School is a student-centered Christian community providing a spiritually, physically and academically challenging education that empower students of diverse backgrounds to learn and explore their passions and develop their talents to meet the world’s needs.

Our goal is to collaborate with our parents through the grace of God to nurture our children to grow and cherish core values such as integrity, collaboration, intellectual, spiritual, service and humility as essential throughout their adult lives.
