Neighborhood Program

  • Susitna Elementary School is a diverse learning community committed to the success of all learners as they become knowledgeable, responsible and caring citizens." Susitna offers two educational programs: a traditional neighborhood program and an Open Optional program.  We have fifteen K-5 neighborhood classrooms, six Open Optional multi- age classrooms, and two Site-Based Behavior Support (SBBS) classrooms.
  • All students benefit from having a full-time nurse, and the offering of art, music, physical education, library, and technology. Special education, English Language Learner (ELL), IGNITE (gifted) and Speech/Language services are provided on-site, and facilitated through in-class, small group and individualized instruction, as needed. We endeavor to provide a strong Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) foundation.
  • We encourage parent involvement and have several active business partnerships, including Subway Alaska and Carr's Safeway. Our school serves as a community center for many after-school programs, including Camp Fire, scouting, Project Ki’L, and area athletic programs.
