    Our Mission

    Fairbanks Building Educational Success Together (BEST) is a school without walls where parents have the primary responsibility for the management of their children’s education. BEST is committed to a framework in which the home is supported by the community as a viable educational alternative. BEST is a non-sectarian partnership between students, parents, professional staff, and community members where families and staff work together to customize an education for their children.

     

    Our Purpose

    BEST supports student success with personalized options to meet families' unique goals and interests.
