Welcome to Nunamiut School!

  • Nunamiut School and the community of Anaktuvuk Pass are both about 50 years old. The Nunamiut people have lived in the area for thousands of years and permanently settled in the area in the early 1950s. The Nunamiut People are the last nomadic people in North America to settle in a permanent community. Elders in the community were children when people settled in Anaktuvuk Pass. The school provides a quality education that incorporates Iñupiat values and traditions. The school is the center of the community with sporting and cultural events connecting the school and the community.
    State and NSBSD educational standards rigorously monitor the daily academic progress of our students. Efforts to improve reading, writing and math proficiency levels are top priorities in the daily routine of students and teachers alike. Monitoring systems are designed to identify skills that need improvement and intervention activities are applied to raise proficiency levels. Instruction is being enhanced by the “Understanding By Design “ system of lesson development, which is built on essential questions and understandings derived from student background knowledge and Alaska academic standards. Of utmost importance, the Inupiat Language Initiative, or ILF, will incorporate Inupiat values and local background knowledge to make learning relevant and applicable to the North Slope.
    Our collaborative goals are that attendance rates, academic rigor and increasing parental/cultural involvement and support of education will continue to improve. We look forward to working with parents in partnership, so students have a solid academic and vocational foundation for a successful future.
