Vision Statement

The Sky City Community will work together to provide positive learning experiences; instill cultural pride and promote high expectations in education; to prepare students for their futures as confident, successful and productive citizens of the world.

School Philosophy

Our SCCS students will be provided a quality education, an opportunity to reach their potential and to develop educational skills. We will provide a successful and safe learning environment for our school community, which is an integral part of the students' education. The school community consists of students, parents, school board and staff, and Tribal Administration all sharing the responsibility of promoting the educational process.

Multi-cultural enrichment and traditional values are integrated harmoniously. Our school provides the best learning environment, which enhances a positive attitude toward individual growth and personal fulfillment. Through motivation, all children are encouraged and expected to reach their fullest potential to become responsible citizens who will make significant contributions to our community.

Physical, mental, emotional and social growth finds its strength in a triangle consisting of the home, the school and the community. The school and the parents will work cooperatively to prepare our children for future challenges that await them. Providing a positive support mechanism will enable these young tribal resources to become successful throughout their lifelong learning process.
