The administration at this school is amazing! They really focus on the total learning experience for the child, and help support the family as educators as well. With monthly Family Night activities, such as, Science Night, Reading Night (where they have away free books to each child in attendance, even siblings!) Family Fun Festival, and Native Olympics, you can't help but feel a part of the school community. Small class sizes, large after school program, and an administration that knows every child, are some of the reasons that you should feel blessed to be a part of this school.

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.
