Welcome to Tikiġaq School!

  • Welcome to the Tikiġaq School, home of the Harpooners and Harpoonerettes. We are the farthest northwest in Alaska. We have 251 students enrolled and 35 employees. We have Early Childhood Education to high school. We invite you to our school at anytime to come and visit your children, or come to talk to us about any concerns that you may have. Our phone numbers are (907)368-2662, 368-2663, and 368-2664.

    Tikiġaq is changing rapidly, and so is the way of life. We encourage our teachers to join us in the community events and also to take part in them.  Tikiġaq is known as a whaling community and does their whale hunt during the spring. Many of our children take part during the whaling season and enjoy learning new things as they progress in their status in the whaling crew. We encourage the elders, as well as local people, to come and share a story of whaling, caribou hunting, hunting squirrels or any tales or legends that might have been shared with them. The students and staff would love to have you come and share.
