Welcome to The Bering Strait School District!

The Bering Strait School District will educate our children to become self-sufficient and contributing citizens through quality programs that reflect our children’s heritage.

The Bering Strait School District, in northwest Alaska, serves fifteen isolated villages on the Seward Peninsula, on Norton Sound and on two islands in the Bering Sea. Current enrollment is approximately 1,800 students and is almost 100% Alaskan Native Inupiat, Yup'ik or Siberian Yupik Eskimo.

Although the number of students served is relatively small, the area served covers approximately 80,000 square miles.  Most of the schools are accessible only by small bush aircraft.
