Only the second day in with a new 7th Grader. All communications so far with office staff, counselors and teachers has been extremely helpful and positive. A Great Way to Start the New Year!!! Thanks!

The highly gifted program had a lot of wonderful features and great children. However, the homework was beyond excessive. I don't think the teachers are aware how many hours every night and every weekend a child spends doing homework.

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.
