Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Meadow Glade Adventist Elementary School, where we have been providing a Christ-centered education to families in North Clark County and the greater Vancouver-Portland Metropolitan area since 1899. MGAES is a Kindergarten – 8th grade private Christian elementary school that is internationally networked, with over 120 schools in the Pacific Northwest alone and impacts the lives of over 1.2 million students worldwide.

Adventist education is much more than the academic excellence for which it is renowned. It also fosters faith in God, respect for others, independent thinking, and moral integrity. It is education based on the development of the whole person ─ building mind, body, spirit, and community, one student at a time.

MGAES is accredited through the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s Adventist Accrediting Association (AAA) and the National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA). We are registered and approved to operate by the Washington State Board of Education. All teachers at MGAES are certified with the state of Washington. Our classrooms are multi-grade (two-grade level combinations in each classroom, with the exception of Kindergarten).

We invite you to make an appointment to take a tour, visit with classroom teachers, and meet the principal to discover what many families already know and value–MGAES is a safe place for young people to be inspired, to discover, grow, and soar on their journey of learning to make this world a better place as we live out our motto and mission: We Learn, We Serve, We Love by living out our mission each day by inspiring all God’s children to walk with Jesus and equip them with skills they need for this life and eternity.
