Our Mission: It is the mission of the Haines Borough School District to graduate life-long learners with the confidence, skills, and knowledge to realize their aspirations and contribute to a changing world.

Our Vision:  We envision Haines Borough School District students who engage in their learning, participate in their community, reach high levels of achievement, and graduate prepared for their futures. Our Guiding Principles :     
  • We believe in the value of the individual. Every student is unique, and is treated with respect and dignity.     
  • We believe high standards and expectations are essential for student success. A rigorous curriculum challenges students.
  • We believe each student can learn and be successful. Differentiated learning opportunities are integral to all instruction.

About the Haines Borough School District

24 days ago

The Haines Borough School District welcomes students living in the Upper Lynn Canal area to come learn at it's single site building.   Currently, a little over 260 students attend the K-12 school and correspondence school.  

The District is guided by the Strategic Plan that states our mission is "To graduate life-long learners with the confidence, skills and knowledge to realize their aspirations and contribute to a changing world." 

With just over 20 teachers and several para-professionals, the adult to student ratio allows for every student to be more than a name on the page, but a member of the school community.  

The curriculum is updated and integrated in the classroom through technology driven instruction.   The District is grateful for the incredible technology program which manages a kindergarten through 3 grade 1 to 1 iPad program and  grade 4 through 12 1 to 1 laptop program.  The plan for technology includes "evergreening" technology throughout the school including interactive whiteboards, an online independent learning center, and educational interventions school wide.
