Students learn in different ways, and there are a variety of curriculum types to meet individual needs.
Textbook, online, on-site, classes at other MSBSD schools, and college courses are all available through Mat-Su Central. For specific options please visit the How We Learn page for more detailed information.
Credit earned at the high school level may require a meeting with your advisor to review coursework and grades.
Sports and Extra Curricular Activities
