    About Our School
    Midnight Sun Family Learning Center (MSFLC) is a public charter school located  60 miles north of Anchorage, Alaska off of the Parks Highway at 7275 West Midnight Sun Drive.  Midnight Sun Family Learning Center first opened its doors in September of 1998 becoming one of the two first charter schools in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough. Presently MSFLC enrolls 196 students. Our school has three multi-age primary grades K-2 classrooms with twenty-four students each,  three intermediate multiage classrooms grades 3-5 with twenty-six students each, and two multi-age classrooms, spanning grades 6-8, with twenty-eight students each. The family oriented emphasis allows siblings to learn together. Our unique multiage structure allows children to learn under the knowledge-based structure;knowledge-based schooling puts the emphasis of early education on teaching and learning an enabling core of broadly shared knowledge- enabling because it builds strong foundations for later learning and opens doors to effective participation and mutual understanding in the wider society. The content-rich academic program is integrated with Core Knowledge concepts, and steeped in technology. Presently MSFLC staff consists of 8 teachers, 8 classroom support personnel, 3 special education aides, an administrative secretary and a teaching-principal who is our special education teacher. Midnight Sun provides an opportunity for parents to have a hands-on involvement in the day-to-day operation of the school. Research shows parent/family involvement directly correlates to student achievement.
