Posted February 21, 2012

We recently moved from Texas to Petersburg and am amazed at the quality of the local schools. My kids are solid performers in school and in fact, my daughter spent several years in a highly competitive private school in Texas. Here in Petersburg she is in Public School and the High School is at the same level as her highly touted private school in Texas. Light years ahead of the public school system in Texas.

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.
