About Us

Kaw Tay Whee School is the community school of Dettah. We offer high quality, culturally responsive programming from full-day junior kindergarten to Grade 8. We believe in instilling strong academic skills in our students so they can be strong, confident members of society. We offer small class sizes with a hight number of curricula-based hands on learning opportunities. The Dene Kede and Dene Laws are a very important part of our learning, and are intertwined in everything we learn. We are dedicated to educating the "whole child", and incorporate active, healthy living into everything that we do. We also focus strongly on nutrition and chronic disease prevention. We want to help our students be the healthiest humans they can be. Kaw Tay Whee School is governed by the very supportive members of the Dettah District Education Authority, and has many important stakeholders; including parents, community members, the Yellowknives Dene First Nation, and Yellowknife Education District No. 1.
