  • Welcome to The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District!


    Fairbanks North Star Borough School District (FNSBSD) is a military-friendly school district. We want to help make your transition in our schools as smooth as possible and provide you with up-to-date information while you are here! 


    With more than 12,600 students and 33 schools in the district, FNSBSD educates more than 4,000 military-connected students, which is roughly one third of our student population. (Current as of August 2023)

    Hutchison High's student population is 16.3% military connected; 6% Active Duty: USAF & USARMY, 8.4% Civil Service: USAF & USARMY, and 1.9% Air Guard.  


    Our district includes Arctic Light Elementary (Fort Wainwright: K-5th grade), Anderson Crawford Elementary (Eielson AFB: K-5th grade) and Ben Eielson Jr/Sr High School (Eielson AFB: 6th-12th grade), which are located on post and on base.


    The school district manages three Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) grants,

    STEALTH Sciences

    Operation Arctic Algebra Advancement

    Tactical Tutoring for Elementary Readers


    Our district also supports the Child and Youth Behavior Military & Family Counseling Program, a program funded by the Department of Defense, where seven counselors serve five elementary schools, three middle schools, and three high schools for students, families and staff.


    We would like to take this opportunity to thank our military families for their service and for their contributions to our greater Fairbanks community and our Hawks family.
