Summary:

The 99901 zip code area of Ketchikan, Alaska is home to 9 schools serving students from elementary through high school, all part of the Ketchikan Gateway Borough School District. The data reveals a mix of high-performing and lower-ranked schools, with Point Higgins School and Fawn Mountain Elementary standing out as the top-performing elementary schools, while Ketchikan High School is the largest high school in the area.

The schools in this zip code serve diverse student populations, with varying percentages of Native American and White students. Interestingly, the two charter schools, Ketchikan Charter School and Tongass School of Arts and Sciences Charter School, have lower test scores and rankings compared to the traditional public schools, despite serving a higher percentage of Native American students. The schools with the highest percentages of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, such as Houghtaling Elementary and Revilla Junior/Senior High School, tend to have lower academic performance.

The data also reveals significant disparities in per-student spending and student-teacher ratios across the schools, with the alternative school, Fast Track, spending significantly less per student and having an extremely high student-teacher ratio of 83 to 1. These resource differences may contribute to the academic performance gaps observed in the data.
