The teachers at this school are enthusiastic and warm always welcoming parent involvement and dealing with the students in a fair and kind way. The school is technologically superb and advanced and has new macs for the computer lab and each classroom has it's own set of computers for student use. It's library has the highest check out rate in the district and the school sponsors multiple bees, clubs and groups for reading, geography, etc. The PTA sponsors all kinds of fun activities for the students and their families throughout the year and the staff nurture and maintain friendships with the students as they grow and advance through their elementary careers. I would be so sad if my kids had to go to a different school! I cannot say enough kind words or give enough praise to the people of Kasuun Elementary.

Kasuun staff is so welcoming. Thanks go out to Mrs. Donnelly, Mr. Kober, Mrs. Copen and Mrs. Gulchik for making my son's transition to Kindy a positive experience for both him and myself!

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.
