Going to school in Thorne Bay Alaska was exciting. The classes where small enough that a student was able to receive one on one help with school work. No one had to try out for team sports, everyone was able to play. Going from a huge school with up to 30 to 40 students to a small school was the best thing that ever happened to me. My grades improved and I received the help that I needed when I was struggling in classes.

Awesome athletics and coaches are the best!
This school has no bullying, no concerns over personal safety, no special security measures, no police, no safety services, the school nurse is our receptionist, and our health program is a band-aid. Everyone knows everyone, and it's the safest school I've ever attended.
