The spring of 2020 has brought lots of change to our world. Right now, it’s hard for you to see your friends or to gather with cousins and other family; you also don’t see your teachers at school. Instead, you talk to your friends on the phone or through social media, and you learn in new ways, such as online. For those in high school, we know you are facing uncertainty. The world is a confusing place right now, and we, like you, find ourselves looking for new ways to accomplish our goals.

Alone it is difficult; Together it is possible
With Teamwork, Respect and Integrity, success is inevitable.
To create a positive learning environment that empowers life-long learners to become community leaders of tomorrow

The name Nemaska means "Place to fish." With a population of almost 1,000 people, Nemaska is nestled on the shore of Lake Champlain. Like some other Cree communities in the territory, Nemaska was not always located where it is today. In 1970, the people of Old Nemaska relocated to the current site to avoid being flooded by the rerouting of waterways for hydro-electric developments.
The school was named after a well-respected Elder who was an inspiration to all and who lived to be 114. The shape of the school represents a fish; fishing has sustained the people of Nemaska for generations.
The language of instruction is Cree and is taught from pre-K to Secondary V. English is taught from Grade 1 to Secondary V. Every school follows the GVC (Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum).
