On average, 40 students lived at the mission. Irvin wrote, "Our custom is to rise at five o'clock in the morning, breakfast at six, have six hours at school in the day, commencing at nine, and the hours out of school are spent at work." Lessons were taught in English and the Iowa language. In 1843 a printing press arrived, on which hymnals and schoolbooks were printed in the Iowa language.
