About Our School
Effie Kokrine Charter School (EKCS) is an academically rigorous and community-focused school with a tight-knit family atmosphere. Our school incorporates Alaska Native Cultural Values into our curriculum, programs and teaching methods. However, we are a diverse campus with students and faculty from many backgrounds.
We take the time to know and respect our students on an individual level. They quickly become members of our EKCS family and we go above and beyond to help them succeed in school and life. Our students say EKCS feels like a second home.
Lastly, our small class sizes ensure that each student receives individual instruction to best meet their needs. Research has indicated that smaller class sizes are a major factor in higher student achievement and lower dropout rates.
