Ardmore Adventist Academy Passes Major School Evaluation with Flying Colors!  We recently had a team of supervisors and teachers from the Union and Oklahoma evaluate our the school. This was after a local evaluation of hundreds of items, rating everything from the academic program, to the resources for students, to the building itself, and many other areas. Every school within the Oklahoma Conference has to undergo this type of evaluation every few years. We received an extremely high rating. Thanks to one and all who helped with the evaluation!
