About Us

KDS Vision Statement:

“BUILDING OUR CHILDREN’S FUTURE TODAY BY TEACHING AND LEARNING THE DENE WAY.”

KDS Mission Statement:

"KDS is committed to providing quality education for our students by concentrating on four components of learning:

Language & Culture ~ Academics & Technology ~ Physical & Active Living ~ Dene Laws & Virtues Education"

Through the development of skills in these areas, students will grow and develop into  respectful, healthy, diligent, and strong Dene who will give back to their families, community and the North.  

School Philosophy:

Our programming continues to operate from Kindergarten to Grade 12. We teach our students that there are four key ingredients on the road to a successful education and life:

  1. Having a good attitude (being positive)
  2. Having a strong work ethic (diligence)
  3. Practicing perseverance (stick-to-it-iveness! Don’t give up, especially when the going gets tough!)
  4. And having integrity (doing the right thing when no one is watching, only Creator)
