Bering Strait School District Reviews

It's located on St. Lawrence Island and it we don't get very much diversity of students. Food is home made, excellent. Teachers and Administrators are very caring. I love the tight knit closeness everyone has. Need different sport activities, all we do is Basketball, wrestling, volleyball, cross country, skiing, Native Youth Olympics. Maybe add hockey if anyone is interested?

What I liked about the BSSD is that everyone can be so supportive. What i want to see change is, during regionals for basketball, it should be all around the district just like any other sports.
There are so many things that I like about this school District, all the people are very nice, and there are so many opportunities for the youth to get involved with different sports throughout the year. I don't think I would want to see anything change other then more funding for more experience for seniors and juniors to experience college out at the universitys
