Gladys Wood students, teachers, staff and families, care about the community. They work hard to support food banks, the children's hospital, community gardens, city-wide clean-up, and so much more. The teachers are early and stay late to support kids and to give them learning opportunities.

They have some of the best teachers around. They are involved in making sure our kids enjoy what they're learning. They also help support the community in lots of aspects such as city-wide cleanup, hospital donations for Children's Hospital, visiting the Extended care facilities.

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.
