Metlakatla High School is one of the best schools in Alaska. Our high school diplomas mean much more to colleges because we are a legit school. Our test scores from last year were quite high, and the teachers are great. Anyone who tries to say otherwise must have a child who is only presenting one side of the story.

I personally went to the high school, and I feel it is a robbery of our knowledge. Met's high school doesn't offer enough education to get any by. It is a shame that the new leaders of Met are being taught at an institution as poorly as this. Good Luck to all unfortunate students attending Metlakatla High school!

This is one of the best schools in the country as far as teachers, students, and administration. Don't let the test scores fool you. There is no better place to teach or learn.

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.
