Abbott Loop is run by a small group of angry burned out teachers. New leadership needed!
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted April 30, 2014

Abbott Loop is an amazing school! My daughter has been going here for several years and has created a close bond with the teachers and fellow students. There is virtually no violence, and a wonderful surrounding neighborhood with crossing duties at every major exit for the school and towards the major roads.

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 2012-2013 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.
