About Our School

  • About Our School 

    Our school offers a rigorous, districtwide program rooted in American Indian history, culture, art, traditions and values. We welcome all students from all backgrounds to learn through and about American Indian Studies beginning in grades PreK through 8 – and continuing through twelfth grade at Harding High School, which provides mentors and team leaders to AIM students. At AIM, our instructors weave Ojibwe and Lakota languages and cultures into academic subjects, making deep connections for our learners. Our Book of the Month program has been recognized nationally for integrating high standards in literacy instruction with American Indian culture. Specialists in technology, science, art and physical education enrich the curriculum, and our free after-school program includes an Indian Youth Enrichment Program, Urban 4H and Extended Day of Learning.
