Our Lady of Lourdes Elementary School (Wíŋyaŋ Wakȟáŋ Owáyawa)
The sky is the limit. And our students prove that time and time again.
Located in Porcupine, South Dakota, Our Lady of Lourdes Elementary School provides a Lakota, Catholic, Jesuit education to students in kindergarten through eighth grade. An integral part of the Red Cloud Indian School system, OLL has been educating students on the eastern side of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation since 1931.
Here, we provide a comprehensive, challenging and cutting-edge curriculum for each student that fulfills our mission and philosophy. Our curriculum enables students to effectively progress in their academic potential, to achieve Red Cloud's curriculum standards, and to be prepared for success at the high school level. After-school programs and a focus on technology enhance our efforts beyond typical school hours. Health and wellness programs, as well as an emphasis on Lakota language and studies for all grade levels, have become hallmarks of our program.
