This is THE best school system or method we have encountered anywhere. I daresay it even beats homeschooling. The teachers and principal are top-notch and inspire the students to do their best and be creative. They are not afraid to try new things and to tailor an education to the student. The students build a real community and like each other. Parents volunteer and help. The teachers go above and beyond their job description. They are teaching students at a high school (and beyond) level. My child (and I) loved it. The students are surpassing state test score expectations and are being prepared for college.

I went to this school just last year and it really prepared me for high school so if your kid leaves in nome send them to this school it really helps. And the teacher helped me get into one of the top schools in alaska.

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.
