|GreatSchools Ratings for Alaska|
In calculating these ratings, GreatSchools analyzed the 2010-2011 Standards Based Assessment (SBA) reading, writing, math and science results for the school and compared them to the SBA results for all Alaska schools with the same grade levels.
If there are no GreatSchools Ratings for a school, the school's test results were either not reported or incomplete. The different student groups are identified by the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development; if there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group in a school, data is not reported for that group.
Keep in mind that when comparing schools using GreatSchools Ratings, it's important to factor in other information, including the quality of each school's teachers, the school culture, special programs, etc.
GreatSchools Ratings cannot be compared across states, because of differences in the states' standardized testing programs.Close this window
