Welcome to the Nelnah Bessie John School website!
Our school was named in honor of a respected White River First Nation elder and teacher, Nelnah Bessie John. At NJBS we strongly believe in family and community connections. We are a one room school and the smallest in the Yukon Territory. You can find us along the picturesque Alaska Highway. Our claim to fame is that we are located at the Canada/USA border crossing and we are located in the most westerly community in Canada…18 degrees west of Vancouver. Please check out our photo gallery to see our community, school and activities.
The Yukon government is providing funding to school councils to purchase basic school supplies for all Yukon students this year. Please see this list for more information on what supplies will be provided to our students.
