I truly appreciate the individual help from the teachers for my grandson's. I have enjoyed the Craig Elementary School System and the programs that are offered to the children. I enjoy the friendly staff and the teacher's aides. What I found most helpful is the breakfast program and I truly appreciate the staff who make the meals for the students. My grandsons enjoy going for breakfast even if they eat at home it still one of their favorites spots to be. This says a lot to the staff! Thank you! Anna Trudeau Grandparent

I have three children at Craig elementary and am very happy! New this year, my expectations were high and so far I'm satisfied. My one complaint would be lack of more excelled learning at the kg level.

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.
