A lower kuskokwim school district my experience wasn't too bad. the diversity is great. so you meet a lot of different people from different places. the schools are small enough so you know everyone which is nice. the sports are pretty good especially wrestling and basketball. last year the food was disgusting, but this year it's so much better.

Lower Kuskokwim school district was always teaching me the right ways of how to deal with life after High school, They taught me how to adult.
The communication between schools is excellent. If there's a problem, it's fixed as soon as possible, and the administration is amazing.
