I have had children go through KCS and have one enrolled currently. I am extremely happy with this school and the subjects it teaches. This school gives the children a great start to their ongoing school years.

This school is excellent in how they teach and getting parents involved in their children's education. My children love going here and we love that the classes are small and its not a huge population of students.

This school is all about reading, math, and writing - back to the basics! It also has a full time art teacher, P.E., Spanish, Music, Library. It uses the Core Knowledge curriculum and Spalding for reading, spelling, and math. It boasts the highest test scores in the district. My child really enjoys the rich history curriculum (not watered down).

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.
