I didn't like the preschool teacher, she wasn't welcoming at all. We're waiting til next year to meet a kindergarten teacher.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted December 6, 2012

My children attended this school. It was a neat concept and the kids loved it there. The teachers would spend extra time with the students if they saw they needed it. We ended up moving out of state and when we enrolled the kids into their schools in the new state they were a grade behind. This schools is good for the culture and a good way for children to learn different Alaskan Native cultures. Unfortunately there are a lot of villagers who come and go to this school, many whom are in poverty and do not have parents that get involved. These challenging children get more of the attention and drastically drags down the academic level. In summary, Great Teachers, neat environment, terrible academics.

The staff can be a little standoffish but my son never had a problem here and excelled quickly! I wish that I still lived in the area so my boys can still attend, finding another school that will actually work with the families is a tough one.

My daughter attended this school the year they opened. She was the happiest student ever here. The teachers care about each student and want them to excel in their studies. The administrator has gone ABOVE and BEYOND her duties for these children. She has even donated her time to help kids get to school. They provide the best education and activities for the kids. The students success is what they are all about. They provide any means possible to help that happen. They may not have a playground but in my opinion that helps them use their imagination more. In addition, outdoor activities exist. The greatest part about the school is the PARENT involvement. This school is about family participation.

This school needs better teachers, and they also need a ply ground. This school has the messes 2end graders ever. They even have children taking other students belongings and would not able to retrun them to the right full owner, because of transfering to another 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.
