Fawn Mountain is a FANTASTIC school!! The staff is very attentive and they promote parent involvement. Our son has enjoyed his time at Fawn Mountain and has excelled in a way he never did at other schools. Their extracurricular activities are spectacular as well...Lego Robotics...Jump Rope...Band...Wearable Art. They even submit the kids writings to the local paper for contests! They admire their students and make them feel like they are part of a family. LOVE Fawn Mountain!!

All three of my kids that have attended this school LOVE it and so do we as parents. The teachers and staff really go above their call of duty, they care about the kids and their individual needs. They have many after school clubs through out the year such as Lego Robotics, K-nex, Wearable Art, Jump Rope, Science and Bag Pipes. Parents are encouraged to play a role in the child's education. Parents are welcomed to help in the classrooms. Parent-teacher-staff communication is great. One big happy family!

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.
