About Tok School
Tok and the surrounding area served by Tok School is home to approximately 1,200 people. The community lies at the junction of highway 1 and 2 making it the first stop for tourists entering Alaska via highway. It is 205 miles southeast of Fairbanks and 328 miles northeast of Anchorage. As expected from its location, the primary business of the community centers on the tourist trade lasting from early May to late September. It is also home of several small federal and state agencies, primarily associated with the environment and conservation.
The school itself is housed in a single building serving approximately 200 students in grades K-12. Most of the students are from Tok except for a small number of high school students who are bused in from Tanacross, a native village 12 miles from Tok. School facilities also include an eight lane paved track, a football field, two softball diamonds, a playground, and an enclosed hockey rink. The new school and accompanying facilities were first occupied in 1994 and serve as a center for many community activities.
Families, educators, and community will work together as partners to develop in the students of Tok School healthy self-concepts, responsible citizens, and life-long learners.
