Charter school helps Tohono O'odham succeed
A charter school in Arizona is helping youth of Tohono O'odham Nation stay connected to their culture and succeed in the academic world.

The Ha:sañ Preparatory & Leadership School, which isn't located on the reservation, met adequate yearly progress (AYP) standards under the No Child Left Behind Act. Two schools on the reservation did not.

At Ha:sañ, students take O'odham language courses, learn traditional songs and grow traditional crops. Half of the teachers are Indian.
