Vision Statement:

The Peigan Board of Education works together with the Community to provide an Education for All Students that instills Pride in their Accomplishments and Niitsitapiisini.

Education Philosophy:

Culture can be defined as the way of life of a group of people. The way it was, is and could be are within this meaning.
The purpose of education is to serve the understanding of a people's culture. Education must serve the mind, the body, the heart and the soul. It must show one's role in society and society's role to the individual.

It must prepare one to see personal satisfaction as well as contribute to the well being of all. Education is a lifelong process and the school must prepare the child for a lifelong education.

We cannot predict the future of the world nor that of any one individual. We must strive to insure that opportunities are available and that each individual has the freedom of choice.

The future of our people is the development of our culture, for the development of our culture will give us the power to realize what we were, what we are and what we will be. Our future is for all and for all to succeed.
