Our Mission is to cultivate and nurture the social, physical, spiritual, and academic growth of all students by utilizing the rich local culture, language, and community/family partnerships so that students can be healthy contributing members of society.

The Yukon Flats school district is spread across the vast northeastern region of Alaska known as the Yukon Flats. The northernmost community, Arctic Village, sits at the base of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in the foothills of the Brooks Range. Our other communities are either along the Yukon River or navigable tributaries of the Yukon.
