The Passing of
Dave LaSwisse


It is with profound sadness to inform that our school Elder Dave LaSwisse completed his Earth walk and entered into the Spirit World during the early morning hours of Wednesday, September 7, 2022. Dave was an Elder who walked a path of humility and taught the importance of kindness and respect by virtue of how he interacted with others. May the impacts of his teachings live on forever through those who were blessed to have experienced his unwavering commitment and support toward a better way of life for all. We send our heartfelt condolences across the miles to his entire family. We grieve with you all through this time of immense loss.


Aho Mitakuye Oyasin!

Our model starts with the student’s needs and builds a plan for engagement around their interests and goals for themselves. Our teaching staff understands how to start where the students are and know when extra supports are needed to remove barriers to learning. Our cross-functional student services staff help students navigate around barriers and inform teachers how to best serve each student’s unique learning needs.
