We have had nothing but a great experieince with the entire staff at T. Brown. We have had wonderful teachers and the principal is just amazing. Not only does the school excel with academics but they have fun. The teachers are all very friendly and eager to work with parents. We are military family and the level of support and understanding for special attention our kids need in times of deployment is above and beyond what they need to do. Best school in the entire North Pole area.

This is our Second year at Tic-brown, we will miss it, Mrs Gates (1st Grade) is an Outstanding Teacher, she strives for each child to their best and cares about her kids. the staff is outstanding and parent involvement is also outstanding. this school really tries hard to make sure no child is left behind. Thank you so much for 2 great years!!!!

So far what I have found is that the teachers want to help but thier hands are tied with the higher up in comand. If your child isn't 2 or more years behind theres nothing that they can do it seems. What happened to no child left behind?

Curriculum is different (weak and confusing to the children) and they're not parent friendly if you have a concern with your child's 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.
