De La Salle Blackfeet School is committed to providing a quality, innovative and faith-based education to empower its students to become successful learners and able participants in the shaping of their community.
De La Salle Blackfeet School is a Lasallian San Miguel school dedicated to creating an environment that recognizes the reality of God’s living presence and nurtures the dignity of each student within a supportive community of teachers, parents, and guardians. We aim to develop individuals who are:
- Strong in self esteem, cultural identity, competence and faith.
- Sensitive to the poor and to the sacredness of all life.
- Inspired to bring their full creativity to their personal lives
Our innovative, student centered curriculum uses culturally sensitive methods to nurture each student’s imagination and creativity while challenging them to develop critical thinking and academic skills in the areas of reading, writing, and math. We keep classes small: a maximum of 16 students. We provide an extended day from 8:15 AM – 4:30 PM with plenty of experiential enrichment and sports activities. We use OBEE’s (Out of Building Educational Experience!) and a weekly Blackfeet Studies class to impart to students a strong sense of their cultural heritage.
San Miguel Schools
De La Salle Blackfeet School is part of a network of schools following the San Miguel Model of Education. There are 11 San Miguel schools throughout the country.DLSBS is the only Network school in a rural area, and the first serving primarily Native Americans.
All San Miguel schools are Catholic, serve predominantly at-risk populations, are not tuition driven, have extended school days, small class size, and extend support to students beyond graduation.
The Mission of the San Miguel Network of Schools is to enhance the viability and vitality of member schools and strengthen their capacity to deliver a uniquely effective, faith-based education to the middle school students in their care.
