Kugluktuk High School, known commonly as 'KHS', is in Kugluktuk, Nunavut, Canada. The school, which serves a town of some 1,500 people, has about 220 students from Grades 6 to 12. Kugluktuk is the most westerly hamlet in the Territory of Nunavut.

The high school, through the "Kugluktuk High School Athletics Association" also known as the "Kugluktuk Grizzlies", has created a non-profit, stay-in-school organization that uses sport and recreation opportunities as incentives for staying in school, and making healthy lifestyle choices. Currently, the membership has over 100 students. Through a variety of fundraisers, they provide the youth in both schools with opportunities largely centred around sport and travel.

Next door to KHS is Jimmy Hikok Ilihakvik serving students in K - Grade 5.

The school and the lacrosse team were featured in The Grizzlies , a drama about suicide in the community.

The Nunavut Teacher Education Program (NTEP) is an important college/university program in the Eastern Arctic of Canada offered through Nunavut Arctic College. This program provides Inuit from Nunavut with the opportunity to work toward a degree while remaining in the Arctic. With this degree in education, graduates can contribute and shape the education system in Nunavut by becoming bilingual teachers or work for the Department of Education. If the Inuit language and culture is to survive during this time of cultural transition, it will be greatly assisted by programs such as NTEP which recognize the importance of infusing Inuit language and culture into the western schooling system that is currently being used across North America. This program is more than an educational program; NTEP is of political and epistemological importance as it recognizes and legitimizes Inuit knowledge, values and perspectives and provides Inuit with an opportunity to play an active role in education.
