TaOtha Community School opened its doors in 2009 for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. The school was named after Ta-Otha, Peter Wesley, who has led his people to traditional territories in 1894 against Indian Agent's demand to stay with in Stoney Reserve boundaries. This eventually became the Big Horn Reserve in the 1950's.
