Posted October 17, 2009

I am the parent of a former student. I was impressed in the first few weeks of school, when my daughter would tell me about the professional conversations she would have with her classmates, regarding their career clusters. Many students had a passion for their cluster. I was also happy to see that there was pride and creativity demonstrated in all of the clusters. I didn't expect artistic expression from welders, broadcasters, motorheads, IT workers...but it was there in most of the students. The academic classes were very strong, especially in Math and English. Hutch has very dedicated and creative teachers and staff. Thanks for the great education for my daughter!

About the tests

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.
