Welcome to SPTHS Page!

Shonto is part of the Navajo Indian Reservation in the northeast corner of Arizona. Located about 20 miles from the Utah/Arizona border, many community members still live in homes with no access to running water or electricity. Most homes are only accessible by dirt roads because of the remoteness of the Shonto Chapter community.

Shonto Preparatory Technology High School was established in 1998 by local visionaries and educators to develop a local secondary institution readily accessible to rural communities, to eliminate prolonged commutes for students, encourage parental involvement and introduce a challenging curriculum to empower local students.

Shonto Preparatory Technology High School has some enrollment requirements and admission is not limited or based on ethnicity, national origin, gender, income level, disability, religion, and language. There are no tuition fees for attending SPTHS. Our school is a small and innovative charter with goals of becoming the premier public high school in this region of the state.
