Our school is rooted in American Indian history, culture, art, traditions and values. We welcome students from all backgrounds to learn through American Indian Studies. Teachers weave Ojibwe and Lakota languages and cultures into academic subjects. Through our Book of the Month program, we highlight American Indian literacy in a school-wide experience that helps get every student excited about reading. American Indian Magnet School embraces parent and community involvement through Parent Academy, Drum and Dance and monthly Powwow events. We also offer students in grades 6-8 the AVID program, which focuses on preparing students with average grades for academic success and college. Our core subjects are enhanced by experts in Science, Lakota, Ojibwe and physical education. Our middle school students (6-8) are all required to take either Lakota or Ojibwe language, preparing them to continue their American Indian studies at Harding Senior High. Free after-school programs include Indian Youth Enrichment, Urban 4-H, Extended Day for Learning (EDL) and athletics.
