    Can't help you with information about the schools in that area, but the hunting around TOK is exceptional. I spent time in TOK, Northway, and Chisana. Hunted the Wrangell's in Chisana for Sheep, Moose, and Grizz. I have a few good friends in the area if you need any contacts.

    thanks joel thats great will pm you in a few days to maybe talk to you and a friend or two. finding out it seams to be a great area for hunting and fishing and just gets better after becoming a resident.

    Did you ever make the move? I'm headed to Tok on Tuesday to teach Math for the rest of the school year (perhaps longer if I like it). I would love to find someone to bomb around with, look at critters, and learn the area.
