About Our Schools

The Nay Ah Shing Tribal School was developed in 1975 as a result of community and tribal leaders' vision and desire to provide educational services for the reservation children.  The Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe Reservation is comprised of three small communities in central Minnesota.  They are District 1 Mille Lacs, District 2 East Lake, and District 3 Lake Lena.  We provide Pre-school through Grade 12 educational services to students from all three districts. Tribal Leaders and Elders are continually working to further develop and enhance these school programs.  Both our students and our staff are required to follow the guidelines and policies established by the state of Minnesota, the Bureau of Indian Education, and the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe.
