Eagle Community School's website!
We are an eco-friendly school located in Alaska's interior on the banks of the mighty Yukon River.
Eagle Community School is the most rural site of the Alaska Gateway School District. ECS is fully accredited and offers students individualized education to pursue their passions.
Students of ECS are involved with a citizen science project called Fresh Eyes On Ice. Students collect ice and snow depth measurements from the Yukon River and Long Lake in Eagle Village. They report their data to UAF and it is disseminated to NASA, the National Weather Service and other entities that track climate change.
Parents, community members, and visitors are always welcome to lend a hand, teach a talent, or work with tutoring our students. We are always grateful for help! Please contact Kristy or Marlys to learn how to volunteer your time.

Both Teachers Receive Master's Degrees from UAF
Kristy Robbins received a M.Ed. in Special Education while Zach Sanders received his M.Ed. in K-12 Education. This two-teacher team works hard to inspire their students to new heights. Almost the entire student body attended their graduation in 2019.
Eagle Community School participated in the A-Chill project in the past four years. This is a dog mushing program based on the George Attla program to teach students fundamentals of dog mushing, animal care, and career exploration. It was implemented through their Science class and 4-H club. Students continue to be active in the dogs' lives.
