Mr. Chris Hanson, Principal

I am very honored to be serving my third year as the principal in Noatak at Napaaqtugmiut School. I graduated from Central Methodist University in 1991 with a degree in Science Education and earned my master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Alaska, Anchorage in 2012. For the past 30 years I have taught Biology, Science, Math, and Health in the communities of Hydaburg, Ninilchik, Soldotna and Kenai, as well as serving as the athletic director at Kenai Central High School for 3 years. I have two beautiful children.  My daughter will be a sophmore at Central Methodist University and is very active in music.  My son is a sophomore at Montana State University where he is attending college and playing hockey for the Bobcat’s. In my spare time I enjoy hunting, fishing and exploring the great outdoors that surround Noatak.The staff and students at Noatak are very involved in academics, extra curricular athtletics, cultural activities and clubs.  


 Feel free to call or come by and visit our school any time.  I look forward to meeting you.
