About Sherman Indian High School
Sherman Indian High School (SIHS) is an off-reservation boarding high school for Native Americans. Originally opened in 1892 as the Perris Indian School, in Perris, California, the school was relocated to Riverside, California, in 1903, under the name The Sherman Institute. When the school was accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges in 1971, it become known as the Sherman Indian High School. Operated by the Bureau of Indian Education/Bureau of Indian Affairs and the United States Government Department of the Interior, the school serves grades 9 through 12.
SIHS Annual Powwow and other events: Every year, in mid-April, Sherman hosts a one-day powwow. The event officially ends Sherman’s parent-teacher conference week. SIHS holds an annual Talent Show on the Thursday of that week. The Miss Sherman Pageant also occurs during this week annually, traditionally on Friday, the evening before the powwow.
