Welcome to Tantalus Community School
Tantalus Community School is located in the Village of Carmacks on the traditional territory of the Little Salmon/Carmacks First Nation. Situated at the confluence of Yukon and Nordenskiold rivers, Carmacks is 180 kilometers, roughly 2 hours by car, north of Whitehorse on the Klondike Highway.
Tantalus Community School nurtures and educates up to 112 students following the British Columbia curriculum. The Mission Statement, Tantalus Hats Edan Ku, describes the school's role: preparing students to become self-sufficient, self-confident and contributing community members. In cooperation with parents and caregivers, Little Salmon/Carmacks First Nation, School Council and the community, students learn though engagement and in a safe learning environment. Embedded in the school culture are the Northern Tutchone values of caring, sharing, teaching, and respect.
