Welcome to SterlingElementary School!

Sterling Elementary serves approximately 240 students in grades PreK-6 from the Sterling community and surrounding areas.

Students at Sterling Elementary participate in regular physical education and music classes.  Band is an option for students in grades 5 and 6.  Other curricular and co-curricular activities include art, Artist-in-Residence programs, computer classes, forensics, gifted & talented services, Battle of the Books,  4-H, judo, basketball, and soccer. Other activities are added as needed based on student & community interest.  We welcome visits to our school by prospective students and their parents.

Sterling Elementary is proud to have been recognized multiple times by the State Department of Education for outstanding increased and sustained student performance through the State of Alaska’s Performance Incentive Program and the Title I Distinguished Schools Program.  Students at Sterling Elementary are served through a variety of academic remediation and enrichment programs designed to target the individual needs of each student and to complement the instruction that occurs in our multi-grade classrooms.  After expanding our special education program to meet a broader spectrum of student needs, Sterling was subsequently recognized by the Governor’s Council for Individuals with Disabilities as the recipient of the Inclusive Practices Award.
