Weller Elementary School has some of the best teachers and teacher support for students. They are all so very kind and willing to help!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 17, 2008

We have two kids both in kindergarten here at Weller and have had nothing but a great experience. Our experiences have mainly been with the kindergarten teachers and they have been wonderful. They have done a great job of tailoring the education of each of our kids to their individual levels of progress. Their teacher has also been very well organized and has communicated with us at every turn. We do wish that they would push the kids more in reading but overall a great experience. Our kids love school and are upset if they cannot go.

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.
