Welcome to Kayenta Unified School District

Yá’át’ééh! Welcome to the website of the Kayenta Unified School District. We are located in the Navajo Nation of Arizona, and we are very proud of our heritage. An old Navajo proverb tells us that we do not inherit the land from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children. It is our privilege and honor to be in the position to accompany our children on their journey to great heights and solid futures.

As you browse through our Internet home, we know you’ll catch our enthusiasm and appreciate our awesome past, present, and future. We believe that together we can accomplish great things!

A Special Message from Our Superintendent

The Difference

I shall be telling this with a sigh    
Somewhere ages and ages hence:    
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—    
I took the one less traveled by,    
And that has made all the difference. 
                                  Robert Frost

As we again move into this time of promotions and graduations, we make plans for the future. It does not matter what you choose to do; it depends more on how you choose to get there.

You can decide to take the easy way – to take a job that really doesn’t require much of you and does not ask for many skills or experience. You can decide to pursue something that will make you happy, which will stretch your learning, and which will use the experiences you have had and make you better. You can build upon the skills you have learned and the life experiences you have enjoyed as you have grown and reached the different levels of your life.

Don’t settle for mediocrity. Strive to be the best in whatever you choose to do. Take the road less traveled. Congratulations.


Harry E. Martin, Superintendent
