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 Elementary School is a candidate school* for the PYP. This school is pursuing aurthorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.
*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
