When I was a kid, I attended SDA elementary school because that was the only school on my island that was conducted in English. Here's how I see them being different from other Christian sects:
- First, they are extremely dedicated to keeping the Sabbath (which they celebrate on Saturday). For example, we always got out of school at noon on Friday so that the teachers could go home and prepare all their meals and such so they wouldn't have to work on the Sabbath.
- Second, they are much more interested in the Old Testament than other sects are (in my opinion). We spent a lot of time, for example, learning about the meanings of the various prophecies in Daniel (like the one of the big statue made of different kinds of metals). This also shows up in their adherence to a lot of the dietary laws from the Old Testament.
