A wonderful school whose staff is very involved in creating an environment that meets the needs of all students. This is a very multicultural school which celebrates the diversity of its students.

Posted January 13, 2005

I believe that this school is great for my kids because of the family atmosphere and cooperation that we as parents have with most of the staff. My kids have learned to read and add at an exciting timeframe. I love Mrs. Mullin and Mrs. Rosser they are just as perfect as you can get for teachers. I as a mother of three have been truly blessed. thank you!

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.
