Welcome to the Stewart Indian School web site. The Stewart Indian School served as the only off-reservation Indian boarding school in Nevada from 1890 through 1980, and its stone buildings are an icon of education and life for many American Indians in the West. In 1985 the school was listed in the National Register of Historic Places as a Historic District and is currently managed by the State of Nevada.

We are excited to announce that the former Stewart Administration Building will soon be renovated into our new Stewart Indian School Cultural Center and Museum, thanks to funding by Governor Brian Sandoval and the Nevada State Legislature. The Nevada Indian Commission was allocated $4.5 million in the 2017 Legislative Session to renovate the Administration Building and the old Post Office building into a Cultural Center and Museum and Welcome Center. An additional $1.2 million was allocated for a new roof on the old Stewart Gym.
