Pine Ridge School Vision Statement

The Vision is that each student be given the opportunity to become "Wolakota"(a whole person in balance and harmony: spiritually, physically, mentally, and socially). The values, perspectives, attitudes, beliefs, social consciousness, and responsible behavior in the "Tiyospaye" (extended family) and respect for "Maka Sitomni" (everything on Mother Earth) all relate to Wolakota permeate all aspects of the Lakota Culture. Pine Ridge School recognizes that each student is an individual with unique and different needs. Pine Ridge School will provide an effective and supportive learning experience.

Mission Statement

Pine Ridge School strengthens our Waziahanhan Owayawa Tiospaye to become effective life - long learners demonstrating our Lakota Values and the concept of Ikopesni Ihanblapo in order to draw knowledge from the past, enhance the present and embrace the future for the well - being of self, family, community, and nation.
