My daughter has been going to this school for two years. I loved her Kindergarden teacher! She was very easy to talk to, will answered your emails or phone calls in a timely manner. Her 1st grade teacher is quite the opposite. I love the school because there are other teachers that are really helpful. It also helps that my daughter like to go to school. But, base on this year teacher performance I will drop the rating.

The previous administrator was fantastic: family friendly,academically driven, student centered and welcoming. The new Principal has altered the environment in a negative fashion. The school has a very negative feel to it. Staff appears to have low moral. The Principal does not appear to be welcoming, concerning, nor an academic leader. Wow what a change!

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.
