About our school:
Ursa Major Elementary staff is committed to the success of all students and prides itself on fostering quality family relationships. Our K-6 school is centrally located on Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson. All of our students are dependents of parents serving in one of the branches of the military. We support our military families through a rigorous curriculum and a variety of before and after school activities. All families are encouraged to be involved with their child’s education through our very supportive teachers, staff and Parent Teacher Association. It is our goal to ensure all students learn at the highest level and pace needed to succeed and exceed grade level expectations each year they are with Ursa Major Elementary School.
