"Nuiyak School offers a regular K-12 school program similar to all of our schools in Nunavut but also offers many hands-on programs such as media and technology, construction, taxidermy and extra curricular activities. They host the community museum and promote an environment within the school that is relaxed and supportive to students. They have a high respect for Inuit culture and language and this is visible throughout the school. Specific activities include renovating and constructing a duplex, doing taxidermy work, making polar bear rugs and full sized wolves and foxes, designing jewelry in wax and having them cast into sterling silver, screen printing garments, creating object boxes for mounting cultural objects and doing archaeological castings of significant Inuit prehistoric artifacts."
