Denali Borough School District Reviews

2 reviews
I attended school at Tri Valley until I graduated. I graduated a year early due to the fact that I was ahead academically and the school wouldn't allow me to take college courses and wasn't offering AP courses. The teachers are fun but not teaching us at the rate we need. I went to college and had to learn how to properly study. The principal was not encouraging of my academic skills and talked to me in a condescending tone. There isn't much diversity due to it being a small school, but the teachers also don't encourage you to be accepting of others. The staff also didn't list me as graduated when I got y diploma so my college couldn't give me scholarships or grants that I was given. Overall the school system and staff failed my education and didn't encourage me to push myself. Kids have started to be held back or not graduated at all. The most recent class had one not graduate and one on the verge of not passing.

A kindergarten through 12th grade school that is one big family. Kindergarten kids give hugs to seniors as they walk down the hall. Athletics support the school, supporting kids to keep their grades up and to stay in shape. Kids don't have to try out for a team, they just get to play. You can be involved in any extra-curricular.
