Case Study: Service High School (AK)

“Something is different here.”

There’s a strong feeling of community when you walk the halls of Service High School in Anchorage, Alaska, a Unified Champion City School. The students, educators, and parents embrace a culture of inclusivity. That culture is felt in programs like Partners Club, a social inclusion group for students with and without intellectual disabilities. As one teacher puts it, “Schools are a microcosm of the real world.” Because of their inclusive environment, students at Service are equipped to thrive—in high school and well beyond.
