Welcome to Susan B. English School, home of the Sea Otters! We are a K-12 school located in Seldovia, Alaska and part of the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District. Seldovia is a small coastal community of about 250 year-round residents. Our students, although remotely located, are supported by a district that is leading the state in the use of technology in the classroom. At Susan B. English School, we offer students small class sizes; one-on-one support with deeply committed and experienced teachers; and a real chance to learn about community.
Currently high school students are taking foreign languages, math and nautical skills via distance education using district provided laptops and collaborative software. Many students take advantage of our district’s partnerships with higher education institutions; some students graduate from Susan B. English with a semester’s worth of college credit!
Our K-5 classroom allows for students to interact with all grade levels and generally learn at a pace that works for them. Elementary students form a unique family in their classroom and provide help and support to each other throughout their time together. These bonds and skills last throughout their years at Susan B. English and serve them well for a lifetime.
Built in 1972, Susan B. English School is a beautiful facility with a full sized gymnasium, pool, newly renovated shop building and is the first district K-12 school to have a 3-D printer. We’ve had State Champion volleyball and basketball teams along with competitive academic teams and regularly organize educational based school trips to the East Coast.
Seldovia is a place where families enjoy the slower pace of life off the road system and Susan B. English School is a place where the whole community supports the efforts of our school and our children. Want to learn more about us? Feel free to call the school directly at 907-234-7616 or visit the City of Seldovia website for more information about the greater community.
