Petersburg Borough School District


The Petersburg Borough School District in Alaska is home to three high-performing schools: one elementary, one middle, and one high school. These schools consistently rank among the top in the state, providing a quality education to their diverse student populations.

The standout schools in the district are Rae C. Stedman Elementary and Petersburg High School. Rae C. Stedman Elementary is ranked 35th out of 176 Alaska elementary schools and boasts a 4-star rating, with strong academic performance across multiple grade levels. Petersburg High School is even more impressive, ranking 4th out of 62 Alaska high schools and earning a 5-star rating, with exceptional test scores in science, English, and math. Both schools have low percentages of free and reduced lunch recipients, indicating a relatively affluent student population, and they spend significantly more per student than the state average, which likely contributes to their success.

While Mitkof Middle School does not quite reach the same heights as its elementary and high school counterparts, it still maintains a solid academic performance, with proficiency rates generally on par with or slightly below the state average. All three schools in the Petersburg Borough School District boast low student-teacher ratios, which likely play a role in their strong academic outcomes and the district's overall ranking as the 2nd best in Alaska.
