Best Public Schools in Zip Code 99652


Summary:

The 99652 zip code area is home to two schools: Big Lake Elementary and Beryozova School. While Big Lake Elementary is a larger, traditional elementary school with 382 students, Beryozova School is a smaller, alternative school with just 23 students. Both schools serve economically disadvantaged communities, with high percentages of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch.

Academically, Big Lake Elementary struggles, with proficiency rates in various subjects falling below the Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District and state averages. In contrast, Beryozova School, despite also performing below district and state levels, has relatively better academic outcomes than its larger counterpart. This may be attributed to the school's smaller size and specialized approach, which allows for more personalized attention and support for its students.

Interestingly, the higher spending per student at Big Lake Elementary ($15,634) compared to Beryozova School ($13,056) does not translate into better academic performance. This suggests that simply increasing funding may not be the sole solution to improving student outcomes, and that the efficient use of resources and targeted interventions may be more important factors, especially in schools serving economically disadvantaged communities.
