Why Multi-age, Multi-grade education?
At Douglasville Adventist School, we believe in the many benefits of multiage, multigrade classrooms!
Current research states:
"In Multiage classrooms, teachers structure learning activities to meet individual student needs rather than aiming toward the "middle" of the class.
The student-teacher continuity afforded by multiage grouping provides a variety of alternatives for special needs students and viable alternatives to grade retention for students experiencing academic problems.
