This school is pretty good. My son started there in 4th grade and had a super year and his teacher was wonderful. 5th grade wasn't as good and the quality went down a bit. I specifically said to not put him in a combo class yet they did anyways and he didn't do as well. Now he's in 6th grade and is doing very badly. He's been pegged as the bad kid so it seems he is always in trouble and the staff has done nothing to help him or me as the parent.

About the tests


In 2010-2011 Alaska used the Standards Based Assessment (SBA) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, math and writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in science. The SBA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Alaska. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
