Mr. Chris Hanson, Principal

I am very honored to be serving my second 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 27 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 freshman at Central Methodist University and is very active in music.  My son is a sophomore at Montana State 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.


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