Why Us

Individualized Instruction

Because our class sizes are intentionally kept small, our students are able to receive more individualized instruction in comparison to other larger school districts.

Newly Renovated Building and Grounds

School building renovated in 2019, State-of-the-Art playground installed in 2022 by Playground Structures Incorporated.

Nah Tah Wahsh PSA and Hannahville Indian School is the first and only Potawatomi Culture and Language school, of its unique nature, in the World. We are proud to teach Potawatomi as a World Language to all ages, birth -12th grade, on a daily basis.
