Choctaw Tribal Schools

 

The Choctaw Tribal School System has six elementary schools, one middle school and one boarding high school on the Choctaw Indian Reservation in east central Mississippi. The Choctaw schools are scattered over a four-county area and serve more than 1,700 students. It is the largest unified and locally-controlled Indian school system in the country.

Choctaw education extends from birth through late life, with services provided through community schools and an array of specialized educational programs. Historic educational neglect of Tribal members has not only imposed profound responsibilities, but has also created opportunities for development of exceptional educational systems. Choctaw education has become a critical element within the reservation communities, serving to support successful Tribal government, economic growth and individual self-worth.
