My daughter had a great year at Lake Otis. She had been in another local elementary school and did not have a good experience. I am so thankful to the staff and principle of Lake Otis for making my daughter feel welcome.

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.
