Welcome to Sterling Elementary School!

Where falcons learn to soar!

We are so excited to have started the 2018-2019 school year! PBIS in our school supports positive behaviors for our students through explicit teaching of school expectations. We welcome families to be involved in our school as much as possible! There are so many ways to help our students and school community.

Sterling Elementary serves approximately 230 students in grades PreK-6 from the Sterling community and surrounding areas.

Students at Sterling Elementary participate in regular physical education and music classes with band as an option in grades 5 and 6.  Other activities include art, Artist-in-Residence programs, computer classes, forensics, gifted & talented services, Battle of the Books,  and the only afterschool elementary judo club.

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. 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.

If you’re a part of our Falcon Family, thank you for supporting our school, and if you aren’t, we hope you’ll consider joining us!
