Umóⁿhoⁿ (Omaha) Nation Public School, is located on Umóⁿhoⁿ tribal lands about 70 miles northwest of Omaha and 27 miles southeast of Sioux City, IA. 588 students in grades Pre K-12 attend the school. Nearly 98% of the students are members of the Umóⁿhoⁿ Tribe.

Umóⁿhoⁿ Nation has 89 professional staff and 87 classified staff including 33 tribal members. The majority of staff live outside the community and make the daily commute from several out lying communities. The staff has an average of 8 years teaching experience and teacher turnover rate at the school is 9% and pupil to teacher rate is 9:1.

The high school was built in 2004, while the elementary building followed in 2009. The middle school was completed in the spring of 2010. A new addition was added in spring of 2014 which added a training room, locker rooms, and a health classroom. In 2018 a new athletic complex and transportation building were added. We just recently added an Against the Current Career Academy in 2022.

Tribal affiliations represented in the student population are Umóⁿhoⁿ, Winnebago, and Northern Cheyenne. The school board is made up of six Umóⁿhoⁿ tribal members.

School covers one square block area plus additional land parcels. One of these buildings is an eight-unit complex that provides housing for staff. Parallel to the west side of the school, is the ever-popular sports complex that consists of the football field and track.

Umóⁿhoⁿ Nation consists of dedicated and caring teachers, administrators and parents who continue on the journey toward capturing the minds and spirits of children through culturally relevant learning opportunities and evidence based practices. The school is committed to providing a safe environment that fosters student success in a wide variety of settings and activities through the cultural lens.


"The mission of the Umoⁿhoⁿ Nation Public School through positive interaction with the Omaha Tribal community is to provide a student-centered education in a safe and respectful learning environment allowing our students to strengthen Native American traditions yet flourish in other cultures."
