Pirlangimpi has a population of about 300 people and the local school, Pularumpi School, has children enrolled in school from pre-school to Year 8.

Through all programs offered at the school, there is a strong recognition of the inclusion of Tiwi culture and the community. Families are consulted about school matters, involved in school activities and outcomes are shared with the community. Children and families are proud to be Tiwi and this is built into all aspects of school programming.

At Year 6 or 7 many of the students leave to attend boarding colleges in Darwin, such as St Johns and Kormilda. Others choose to go to the local boarding school, Tiwi College at Pickataramoor, Melville Island.
