Main Elementary is culturally diverse, has excellent teachers, and is very well-rounded. Students are happy, they learn and you can't beat this school. North Star is newer and has a nicer building but the atmosphere is not necessarily better. People who have spent time at all 4 schools really appreciate Main and what it has to offer.

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.
