Kugluktuk High School, known commonly as 'KHS', is in Kugluktuk, Nunavut, Canada. The school, which serves a town of some 1,500 people, has about 200 students from Grades 6 to 12. It is the furthest west in the territory of Nunavut.

The high school, through the "Kugluktuk High School Athletics Association" also known as the "Kugluktuk Grizzlies", has created a non-profit, stay-in-school organization that uses sport and recreation opportunities as incentives for staying in school, and making healthy lifestyle choices. Currently, the membership has over 100 students. Through a variety of fundraisers, they provide the youth in both schools with opportunities largely centred around sport and travel.

Next door to the school is the Jimmy Hikok Ilihakvik elementary school serving the younger students.
