Native students find success at wellfunded South Dakota Catholic school

As South Dakota education officials work to close the achievement gap between the state’s Native American students and their white peers, a private school just outside Chamberlain is finding great success with a unique set of programs and support.

 St. Joseph’s Indian School is a Catholic residential school which, at the start of the 2019-20 school year, served as a second home to 221 Native American students from nearly all of the reservations in South Dakota. The school’s combination of support both inside and outside the classroom, as well as its culturally responsive teaching model, have greatly contributed to the success of its students, according to staff members.
