My name is Kim Brown and I am the Principal of Upper Hay River School. I have worked with the Fort Vermilion School Division for almost 20 years and feel privileged to be part of such an amazing team!

We may be small, but we are mighty and proud. We have a strong focus on literacy and numeracy while valuing and incorporating Indigenous culture. Our students, staff, and community take pride in this school and in their children's education!
