About Rilke Schule
Rilke Schule is a K through 8th grade charter school within the Anchorage School District with a focus on the German Language. Charter Schools are public alternative schools that are held to the same standards as all other ASD schools, though they have more freedom with their choice of curriculum and may use methods of teaching that are not used in other schools.A very good overview of charter schools can be found at http://www.uscharterschools.org/pub/uscs_docs/o/index.htm
Charter schools in Alaska are regulated by the State Department of Education and Early Development.http://www.eed.state.ak.us/Alaskan_Schools/Charter/.
The 2012-2013 school year is our sixth year. The original school charter was approved for three years. In March of 2010 the State Board of Education approved the Rilke Schule Charter for 10 more years. Yippee!!
The school is located at 2511 Sentry Drive, Suite 100, in Anchorage Alaska. Appointments to tour the school can be made by calling the school office at 907-742-7455
