Superintendent's Message

It is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to Little Wound School and to those students and parents new to our school, WELCOME! 

Since July 2017, I have been honored to serve as the Superintendent of Little Wound School. It is a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic, social and cultural growth.   Read More

At the November 16, 2020 Little Wound School Board meeting, the Board took official action to cancel winter sports this school year.  This decision was based on the continued risk of spreading Covid 19 to our students, parents, staff, and the overall health and safety of our community.   The LWS School Board will continue to monitor our stance on this issue continuously throughout the school year.

For nearly a century, Little Wound School has been a leader at providing a quality education grounded in Lakota culture and history. Named in honor of Chief Little Wound and his son, George, today our school educates about 900 students from kindergarten through twelfth grade.
Today, Little Wound School’s mission remains unchanged: To provide a sacred environment for students to achieve academic and Lakota language and cultural excellence. All our students receive Lakota language instruction from kindergarten through graduation, students take classes in tribal government and Native American studies, and they have the opportunity to attend cultural activities throughout the year. Our students are also some of the most incredibly talented people in the nation: they include Gates Millennium Scholars, Indian National Finals Rodeo champions, Lakota Nation Invitational tournament champions, actors, published poets, and more.
We invite you to become a part of our Mustang tiospaye (family). Whether you’re a student looking to enroll or an adult looking for the next step in your career, we are confident that you’ll find Little Wound to be a welcoming and hospitable school district. Cante waste yuha—we greet you with a warm heart: come and discover why so many people have said, “Once a Mustang, always a Mustang.”

Protect yourself and others, get vaccinated.
We respectfully ask all visitors to Little Wound School to
wear a face mask.  If you have any COVID 19 symptoms, please do not come to school.
