Pulling together to foster compassionate, resilient, culturally empowered and mindful citizens while promoting high academic expectations to ensure success within a changing world.

The Annette Island School District is located in Southeast Alaska (16 miles south of Ketchikan) in Metlakatla, the only town on Annette Island, on the only Native Alaskan Reserve in the state. AISD offers a comprehensive education program for approximately 325 students. As one of the largest employers on the island, Annette Island School District has a staff of approximately 125 with a full staff of educators and paraprofessionals, a business office, full maintenance and janitorial staff, multiple athletics teams and activities, and more.

All three schools offer contemporary classrooms with a strong emphasis on technology, which is available to both staff and students. The campus consists of PreK-5 Elementary School (Richard Johnson Elementary), a 6-8 Middle School (Charles R. Leask Sr. Middle School), and 9-12 High School (Metlakatla High School). In addition to traditional academics, AISD celebrates its student's and community’s rich cultural heritage and Tsimshian traditions with the teaching of Sm’algyax (the Tsimshian language) taught in culture classes, Native Arts, and music. Metlakatla High School has introduced a CTE (Career & Technical Education) program, which includes shop, welding, Native Arts, STEM, and scuba classes to its students.
