Saint Michael is a small village located on the western coast of Alaska. The village is home to about 400 people and was once a resting place for many travelers during the Nome Gold Rush. Over the last 100 years the population has dropped dramatically, but many families still call Saint Michael home.
Anthony A. Andrews School is a very important part of the Saint Michael community. The school was rebuilt in 2008 and is currently home to about 150 students. The school services students in grades K-12 and employs over 30 staff members. The new school boasts a computer lab, science lab, large library, modern gym, and industrial arts classroom. Each classroom also has a SMART Board and computer cart which allow teachers and students to integrate technology into the learning process.
