Welcome to our Site

We are Nixyaawii Community School.  Proud to be the Golden Eagles.

Our school is a charter of the Pendleton School district and we are located on the beautiful Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation in northeast Oregon. Our charter focuses on Native American culture, infusing native languages into daily school life, and serving the tribal community.

Last day of School!! 2016 was a wonderful year for the Nixyaawii Golden Eagles! I want to thank all of the staff for going above and beyond to help our students and community thrive. Including all of the staff at CTUIR and the maintenance crew for maintaining our facility and for the building of our new gymnasium floor. This year was full of amazing events that our students (especially the class of 2016) will remember their whole lives.
