My son attended Kindergarten here as a highly advanced student. Instead of being forced to go over his alphabet and things he already knew, his teacher took the initiative to DO something to keep his attention. He was allowed to visit a 2nd grade classroom 3 days a week for advanced reading, which made a world of difference in his attitude about school because he was getting bored. i was very impressed with his teacher and the staffs willingness to work with his need individually!

My eldest child just completed seven years of education at College Gate and I have two other children still attending the school. I would not pick another school for them to attend. caring staff, involved families, and a safe environment to promote an excellent education.

I was so impressed with the experience my child had at this school. My son started Kindergarten here with Mrs. Henry and I loved the way she & the school took care of those little ones. The teachers there are creative with the kids. They did many art projects and had a very well rounded schedule. The principal is wonderful and friendly as is all the staff I came in contact with.

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.
