Our Mission & Philosophy
“To awaken a love for God, a desire for learning and service to others.”
It is our purpose to provide a Christ-centered academic environment where students are nourished spiritually, intellectually, socially, physically and emotionally.
We believe that while knowledge of facts and the ability to think are necessary for a person to succeed in life, they are not all-inclusive.
We believe that serving God gives us purpose, inspires a sense of identity, and motivates us to serve our community.
Teacher: PreK-Kindergarten Teacher
Jesus is the Joy and the Light of my life! Everything I do whether teaching or parenting my own two children, or talking with a stranger at Fred Meyers, is all done through that love and joy. Working with children has always been my passion and my calling in life and in ministry; and I deeply believe there is nothing more beautiful than seeing life through the eyes and mind of a child. I believe every child is a blessing to this world and each have a special gift that is unique to them. My philosophy in teaching and something I say to my students often is, “Practice makes progress!” My job isn’t simply to teach phonics and arithmetic, but to walk alongside your children in building their characters and helping them discover all that they are, and all that God is for them. When I’m not in the classroom, my children are at the center of everything I do. We enjoy exploring the beautiful central Oregon outdoors biking, hiking, and camping. We also love visiting the many parks in our area and enjoying a good snow day on our tubes!

Greetings! I teach PK to 2nd grade. Teaching has been my joy and passion for over twenty years. My husband and I have two children, River and Summer. As a family, we love to snow ski, enjoy Lake Powell every year, mountain bike, and enjoy God’s great outdoors. My desire as a teacher is to create a positive learning environment for my students, to help them become lifelong learners, and most importantly to know Jesus as their friend and Savior.
Teacher: 3rd-5th Grade | B.A. Elementary Education
I’m Kari King and I teach grades 3-5. I have been teaching over 30 years and love spending time with kids. I love watching my students learn and grow academically, as well as in their friendships and their relationship with Jesus Christ. Each student is wonderfully special to me and teaching them is my great privilege. My husband of 32 years, Robert, and I enjoy spending time with our two grown college-age daughters, Natalie and Lauren. Our family shares a love of hiking, biking, waterskiing, and snow skiing.
Teacher: 6th-8th Grade |
My favorite students to teach are middle schoolers! I have been working with middle schoolers for years in a wide variety of unique educational jobs. My first job was teaching in Malawi, Africa with international students coming from Brazil, Ethiopia, India, and the Philippines. I also spent 4 summers by Mt. Rainier teaching Rock Climbing and High Ropes to youth. I have a passion for creating opportunities for engaged hands-on learning and building community among students. I am a big fan of the works of Richard Louv and Peter Wohlleben in which they discuss the relationship between humans and nature, specifically children, and the importance it has in their development. I love spending my time playing volleyball, traveling, swing dancing, rock climbing, creating art, and gardening.

Home & School Association
The Home & School Association serves to draw the home, church and school closer together into a positive working relationship that fosters a cooperative and understanding spirit of the school’s program. Parents are encouraged to actively participate in Home & School sponsored activities.
Why should you get involved in Home and School?
Studies show that students who have parents that are involved in their education do better in school. You help decide where the fundraising money is used. As a team, we help Three Sisters Adventist Christian School be the best it can be!
Some of the objectives of Home and School are:
1. Encouraging parents to visit the school
2. Providing volunteer services as requested by the school
3. Assisting financially in providing the school with additional classroom equipment and materials.
The School Board is comprised of constituent members selected to provide direction in setting school policy.
School board meetings are held at 6:30 PM on the third Tuesday of each month. They are open to parents and constituent church members, except during executive sessions.
Student Life Photo Gallery
We pride ourselves in the fun we have while learning! Play is the number one way for children to learn – it helps them retain what they are being taught, and it also helps develop a love for school and education. Here are some photos from over the years of our many field trips, extra-curricular activities, and special events.
