A little about us... The original He Dog Day School opened in 1893. In 1935, the new He Dog Consolidated Day School was opened. In August of 1950, He Dog School became part of the Todd County School District.
Today, the He Dog School compound is comprised of nine buildings. He Dog School has always been a Pre-School through 8th Grade school. Because we must abide by our restructuring plans, He Dog has become a Pre-School through 5th Grade school.
He Dog School is located on the west end of the Rosebud Reservation near Parmelee, S.D. It is one of nine elementary schools in the Todd County School District. He Dog School serves three communities: He Dog, Upper Cut Meat, and Parmelee. The He Dog School student body is 100% Native American.
