This school has been a great thing for me and my siblings. I really love how the teachers take the time to truly instruct us. I also like how the needs of the student are put first. If someone isn't understanding a concept, the teachers will take the take the time to sit down and go over the problem with the student. Everything is catered towards helping the students to succeed.

We are provided with some of the best opportunities to gain experience in a variety of fields of study, as well as assisted in our endeavors by several projects that are spearheaded by the school itself. For example, it is very expensive for students to participate on sports teams, because the cost of extracurricular activities is very high in the remote regions of Alaska. Recognizing this, the school teachers and administrators have set up several fundraising activities that help students raise money in order to participate on these teams. The teachers at this school are continually promoting the welfare of the students, oftentimes at the expense of their own time and money.

Overall, my school provides students with a great learning environment. The teachers here are really focused on helping the students to achieve greater heights, and provide us with a variety of unique opportunities that can't be found elsewhere.

The teachers at this school are fantastic. They strive to maintain a level of excellence in the classroom that benefits each and every student. They are passionated about what they teach about. When I get an assignment in the classroom, most of the time I feel like it is because the teacher wants me to understand that particular assignment-it's not just busy work. Most of the teachers here have had the opportunity to teach elsewhere, so that brings a lot of diversity to the classroom. The students here are able to maintain a personal relationship with the teachers outside of the classroom, which is something I think is very important. In addition to maintaining a productive learning environment, the teachers here spend countless hours outside of the required work day in order to benefit the students. They are involved in a variety of school hosted events that take hours of dedication and preparation on their behalf. I think the teachers at this school go above and beyond the bounds of the job description.
I think the involvement of the Principal and guidance counselors at this school is adequate for a school in the Southeast Island School District. Since most of the schools in the district are small and pretty spread out, it's hard for the counselors and Principal of the schools to be everywhere at once. However, the Principal, counselors, and Superintendent have visited on several occasions. Since the school district is so spread out, the task of maintaining discipline within the schools usually falls to the Head teacher. Overall, I think this distribution of authority works well for our school. It allows us the freedom of most day to day decisions, but also maintains that level of authority and propriety that is expected of public education.
