Innovative education supported by public funding. IDEA keeps looking for ways to improve. We are seeing new technology, more online courses and well-known speakers providing workshops each year. It just keeps getting better and better.

IDEA did not offer the help and support that our family needed to be successful with home schooling. This year we put our child back in KSAS a charter school in the area and have learned that our 3rd grader is behind in math. What a shame. The allotment was not nearly enough to facilitate extra curricular activities like sports, etc. if the parent pays for high quality curriculum. The school year was a complete disappointment for our family. When we asked for help and guidance we were always told that we could figure it out on our own. This is not to say that all home school programs are the same way, but be sure to do your research first. In this area I think Connections Home school program is by far superior in our family's opinion.

This school is a wonderful support for homeschoolers. The teachers and staff are friendly and helpful, there are many resources available to enhance your child's learning and opportunities for you and your children to network and interact with other homeschoolers. It truly combines the best of homeschool with the best of structured education.

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.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
