• Welcome to the Tanana Website

    I am so glad you have taken the opportunity to learn more about our school, Tanana Middle. I am honored to be the Principal of this Grade 6 through Grade 8 Middle School located in historic Fairbanks, Alaska. Fairbanks is a warm and caring community with an education system that prides itself on providing students with a positive school culture through building relationships with students and families, incredible experiential learning opportunities for students, and ongoing professional development for its educators. I am proud to say that Fairbanks has been my home for over 40 years! 

    As a school leader, I believe a supportive, creative, and welcoming environment is a necessity for our middle-level students. As Principal, I will continuously work with our staff toward high academic achievement deeply rooted in literacy and numeracy for all students, regardless of disability, race, culture, socioeconomic background, or academic level. I am committed to the goal of all reaching their full potential.

    Thank you for visiting our website!

    Heather Johnson, M.Ed.

    Principal, Tanana Middle School
