Opened in 1959, Inlet View Elementary is one of Anchorage’s oldest neighborhood elementary schools. It is located in the heart of downtown close to Anchorage’s extensive trail system as well as the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts and Anchorage Museum. Inlet View’s small student population fosters a close knit community that supports its students and staff. Inlet View’s vibrant community includes an award-winning Parent Teacher Association. Inlet View is currently in its first year as an International Baccalaureate (IB) candidate school and is on track for becoming Alaska’s first IB elementary school using the Primary Years Program (PYP) approach to inquiry-based learning.
