Alyangula Area School is a dynamic, innovative educational community which is unique in Australia. We are proud to claim that no other school in the country can match us in terms of unique tropical Eylandt location, student population, staff excellence and program delivery.

Located on Groote Eylandt in the western part of the Gulf of Carpentaria our school functions as an urban school although it is located on very remote Aboriginal land far from any large population centre.

As one of three area schools in the Northern Territory Alyangula Area School is committed to providing an excellent learning environment for our students from Preschool to Year 10. We promote understanding of the needs for individuals to care for, support, and value each other within a safe environment. Our Middle School program is entering its fourth, highly successful year and we have dynamic specialist music and science programs, and a vigorous and stimulating information, communication technology (ICT) focus.
