Shonto Preparatory Schools are accredited by the North Central Association (NCA) of Colleges and Schools. We serve the areas of Shonto, Ts’ah Bii’kin, Tonalea, Kaibeto, Tall Mountain, Black Mesa, White Mesa, Kayenta, Navajo Mountain, and Forest Lake, all within a 60-mile radius.

It is our school wide goal to teach our students to become productive and capable learners. We want to see our students Meet or Exceed on State and local assessments. Working as a cohesive academic community, this goal is obtainable. As academic facilitators we will continue to teach the Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards while placing emphasis on cultural values. We are most proud of the opportunity we have as educators to work with such a culturally enriched student body. We will work to inspire our student’s intellectual abilities so they can be productive citizens in today and tomorrow’s society.

Our plan is to integrate project-based learning and technology using cultural teaching methods across the curriculum. Through professional development our goal is to become a high-quality school with a rigorous academic environment.

SPS offers a full range of support services and programs which include:

  • Support Services (Assistant Principal, Lead Teachers and Academic Counselor.)
  • Enrichment Classes (Diné, Art, Technology, Library and P.E.)
  • Exceptional Educational Programs with Inclusion support, i.e. Gifted & Talented Program
  • Technologically equipped classrooms
Equal Education Opportunity

It is the policy of Shonto Preparatory Schools to maintain a non-discriminatory learning environment and to ensure that students are not excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or otherwise subjected to discrimination in any program or activity of the district on the basis of gender, race, color, religion, national origin, or disability.
