The Pierre Indian Learning Center offers students in grades one through six a unique educational experience.  Lower level classes (grades one through six) are self-contained, while upper level grades (seventh and eighth) are departmentalized.  All students receive an education in accordance with the State of South Dakota Content Standards.  PILC provides on-site special services as needed.  Examples of these services include speech-language therapy, resource room services, inclusion support services, and a licensed school psychologist available to provide diagnostic and psychological testing.

    Instructional methods used at PILC include precision teaching methods, diagnostic-prescriptive teaching applications, specific reading fluency and phonological coding/ multi-syllabic decoding practices, and integrating content standards into the curriculum.  Our school also uses Applied Humanism when working with oppositional-defiant students.
