In 1926, the school at the Uintah Ouray Agency had a capacity for 125 students. There were 129 children enrolled but average attendance was 118. The reservation school offered course work only through seventh grade.
The Agency’s 1926 annual report includes school attendance:
301 Total school age children on reservation
239 Total eligible for school
26 Attended non resident boarding school
129 Attended the reservation school
4 Attended school on other reservations
80 Attended public schools
About this time, a national study of Indian Schools began. The resulting Meriam Report, issued in 1928, was critical of Indian Schools and other government policy on Indians.
