Welcome to Levi Angmak School!
Our school has a friendly, inclusive environment. We have approximately 370 students from kindergarten to grade five. Most of our staff members are Inuit.
Our school follows the Inuit guiding principles that reflect Inuit values. Most of our students speak Inuktitut as their first language. Our language of instruction model is the qulliq model, where instruction is given in both Inuktitut and English. The District Education Authority (DEA) sets expectations and responsibilities for staff and students.
