Our school offers a district-wide program rooted in American Indian history, culture, art, traditions and values. We welcome students from all backgrounds to learn through American Indian Studies in grades Pre-K through 8. At AIMS, instructors weave Ojibwe and Lakota languages and cultures into academic subjects, making deep connections for our students. Our Book of the Month program has been recognized nationally for integrating literacy instruction with American Indian culture. We also offer the AVID program to grades 7-8. AVID focuses on preparing students with average grades for academic success and college. AIMS also has specialists in Science, Lakota, Ojibwe and physical education. Free after-school programs include Indian Youth Enrichment, Urban 4-H and Extended Day for Learning.
