In 1963, Gertrude Jones founded Sun Valley Indian School as Twin Wells School. Her dream was to provide a boarding school for the Native American children that would make a difference in their lives. The opening school was on a 5-acre plot of land that has grown to be 70+ acres and 32 buildings. The dream lives on in the staff and volunteers as we minister to the children God sends.
