My son attended this school for kindergarten and I was very pleased with the involvement of the staff.

Woodriver is by far one of the caring group of educators I have ever known. I have had three children go there and I have thoroughly appreciated their expertise, flexibility, and unification for the good of the kids. Teachers like Mrs. Forbes, Mrs. Levison, Mrs. Viale, Mrs. Cieplik, Mrs. Brashear, Mrs. Hackett, Mrs. Berkeland, Mrs. Nash, Mrs. Palomino, Mrs. Gottschalk, and others are only a few of the wonderful people at that school! They deserve all the credit for their efforts. Mr. Gillis is a terrific leader, empowering the teachers and staff to create the environment children thrive in. Our family will forever appreciate their hard work, dedication, and positive outlook.

Excellent elementary school. Great variety of children and most all of the kids come from very stable homes. The academic programs and staff are all wonderful and most of the teachers have a long relationship of teaching at Woodriver. My younger child will be be able to have the same teachers as her older brother. Extracurricular activities are available and each year a new variety becomes available. Parent involvement is great as each concert and school/community event is standing room only. I believe this is an excellent school and feel secure that my children's education and safety is being taken care at Woodriver.

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.
