I go here. I'm entering 8th grade, and when I first started, I was solo scared I would be bullied, get lost, ect. But the teachers delt with bullying very appropriately and they were forgiving about being late, and they reallybtook time with each student. There was always an adult to talk to if needed, and by far the best school experience I've had. The homework is tough but it teaches. There are also many very fun activities. Volleyball games was my favorite. They were always upbeat an exciting. Sold good food too =^.^= I was part of tatu and that was very fun! The environment was always very welcoming. Tanana is like my 2nd home. I really recommend this school!!! Go Tanana eagles!!!

Tanana is a fabulous school! Being in the military, we have spent time in many different schools. Tanana is the best middle school we have ever been a part of. The counselors are incredible and really get to know each and every student. The teachers truly seem to love their job, and do their best to challenge and encourage students. The school also provides more challenging work for those students who may excel and need more. Bullying has not seemed to be an issue at all, and there is a warmth in the school that is felt despite the intense chilly temperatures OUTSIDE. The music program is great, and the sports teams really have fun and have wonderful coaches that set great examples for the students in sportsmanship while still teaching great athletic skills. The only complaint I have is that the students only can choose one elective. And that we have to move away from this awesome school (oops. I guess that was 2 complaints). We truly love this school. Tanana is fabulous!

This school is very good. It is almost perfect, but it has just a couple of little problems. The teachers are avarage(some are awesome, but some don't care about their kids at all. The rules at lunch are a little weird too. Everything else, though, is absolutely amazing. Very very safe, everyone is good at math, and you can also go to a higher math class if you want to.

Tanana was great. The teachers were awesome and I never had any issues. The disipline is good too. Middle school is middle school so take with a pinch of salt.

The math program is very bad, and they only have one teacher to chose from, so if the teacher is not good enough the kids do not have any other choices. They need more teachers that actually care about the students.
