Northern Lights ABC K-8 School Reviews

I liked how academically motivated this school is. I felt very prepared going into high school. It is one of the most diverse schools in Alaska, and you get to meet people from all sorts of backgrounds. It is fairly strict, meaning you cant chew gum, no phones, no flip flops...but it helps you get good studying habits without distractions. The teachers (especially the middle school teachers) are willing to help people who need extra help as well. I can say I have had to go in the morning and talk to my math teacher a couple of times.
