Chief Zzeh Gittlit School is the furthest north of Yukon schools. It is located in Old Crow, which is the only fly-in community in the Yukon. Old Crow is located north of the Arctic Circle on the bank of the Porcupine River near the junction of the Old Crow River and the Porcupine.

Old Crow is the home of the Vuntut Gwich’in. The community is rich in culture and traditional ways. Culture is a very important part of the education of the children of Old Crow. All students study Gwich’in, and take part in cultural activities. Traditional cooking, sewing, beading, working with furs, and making traditional tools and items are part of the cultural activities that are on going. Elders visit the school to tell stories, cook with the children and assist with other activities. All students will have time on the land.
