Mission Statement


Robbinsdale Area School's American Indian Education Program mission is to promote youth leadership, provide academic support and encourage career development for American Indian students based on American Indian values, culture and language.  Our vision is to assure that students attain the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to realize their potential, meet the challenges of their life choices, and fulfill their responsibilities as students grounded in Indigenous life ways.
