Along with standard classrooms, MKS has a home economics room, computer lab and science labs, a shop and a gymnasium. The gymnasium is accessible to community organizations for recreational activities. Technology available includes Smartboards and computers in every class and a full coverage wireless network. Local agencies, such as Health and Social Services, Community Health Representatives, Aklavik Fire Department, Recreation, Mental Wellness and RCMP also partner with the school to assist with program delivery.

MKS underwent renovation in 1997 with the expansion of the senior high wing and the addition of a beautiful library that is reflective of the cultures. The library was later recognized as a public-school library to service both students and community.
