The Nelson House Education Authority has a negotiated Collective Agreement with teachers and all teaching staff are members of the Manitoba Teachers Society.
The high school has been working closely with MFNERC (Manitoba First Nation Education Resource Centre) on A School Improvement Project. Curriculum delivery at the high school is operating on a tri-semester system. Both schools operate from the end of August to the end of June each year.
