According to the Korean national scholastic assessment of 2013, Daejeon Sahmyook Middle School is now among the top 0.3 percent of the nation's schools, ranked 12th among 3,225 schools nationwide.
The school’s vision is to “foster globally creative and outstanding students” through proper Adventist education, character development, and academic growth. Above all, Daejeon Sahmyook Middle School promotes knowledge, ethics and physical development based on the Bible's counsel to “love your neighbor as yourself.” The school enjoys an outstanding educational environment.
To create an atmosphere of comfort and contentment where students can feel at home, the school's classrooms and hallways are designed like a house. Students may sit or lie down to read books and play during recess. Since 2010, schools around the country have been promoting the motto of “schools without violence”; However, while other schools install CCTVs and use artificial ways to prevent school bullying and violence, Daejeon Sahmyook Middle School has focused on educating students on the fundamental sanctity of life, building upright character, showing love and humaneness.
Daejeon Sahmyook Middle School's aim is to be the “head” and not the tail. Principal Kim JoonSup makes it clear that “our school will do its best to teach with passion and love; to guide our students to be active and creative through all appropriate means. We will continue to do our work in a spirit of humility and service.”
