Indian Oasis High School & Middle School
Learn More About Our Programs

The Indian Oasis High and Middle Schools provide students with a hybrid curriculum that integrates direct instruction, computer-based curriculum, and project-based learning. We believe that this combination of teaching strategies provides students of all learning styles with the best chance for success.

Direct Instruction

The direct instruction provides students with whole group, small group, and one-on-one instruction, which allows us to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of individual students.

Computer-Based Curriculum

Our computer-based curriculum, OdysseyWare, provides students with opportunities to complete the coursework away from school to help students earn credits faster.

Project-Based Activities

Our project-based activities allow students to use their hands-on skills to grow a school garden from beginning to end. We are also looking at establishing a school business by utilizing the car wash facilities next to our school. Students earn a grade for all projects they participate in to supplement their academic class work.

Life Skills Enrichment

In addition to the traditional coursework, students have the opportunity to participate in an enrichment class that focuses on developing life skills. Activities that students engage in are:

  • Healthy living with Healthy O’odham Promotion Program (HOPP) and Tohono O’odham Community Action (TOCA)
  • Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs (ATOD) program with Tohono O’odham Police Department and other community agencies
  • Radio broadcasting with KOHN
  • Public speaking skills
  • Critical thinking skills
  • Real-life living skills

Giving Back to Our Community

We believe we have a responsibility to give back to the community that supports us and that by doing so, we will be better individuals academically, socially, and individually. It has been our pleasure to make a difference by taking part in the following activities:

  • Helped to decorate and make posters for Miracle on Main Street
  • Participated in the Respect Mother Earth Poster contest
  • Showed support for T.O. Veterans by attending the seminar at the administration building

Juvenile Detention Center

We believe that education is the cornerstone of youth rehabilitation; and it is the right of every young person to be able to receive an education regardless of his or her standing with the law. Indian Oasis High School and Middle School is honored to be able to host the facilities and possess the expertise to oversee students within the juvenile court system.
