Kayenta Unified School District #27: Excellence in Teaching and Learning
Navajo Proverb
District Programs

We are proud to be able to offer some important school programs that help our students excel academically, physically, and socially. Below are just a few of our stand-out programs that make Kayenta an awesome place to be.

All Day Kindergarten

 “There seem to be many positive learning and social/behavioral benefits for children in all-day kindergarten programs.” That’s what Patricia Clark wrote in her recent study published by the Educational Resources Information Center.

We are fortunate to be able to provide all-day kindergarten classes at Kayenta USD, as we also believe that our students will excel more quickly, both academically and socially.


For a child whose first language is not English, learning to read can be a very difficult task. New research from Assistant Professor Nonie Lesaux at Harvard Graduate School of Education, however, finds that “with proper intervention, children who speak English as a second language can learn to read English as well as or even better than their English-speaking peers.”

Our district works hard to provide our students every opportunity to be able to excel in an English-speaking world.


We encourage our athletes to practice hard and always do their best. Our coaches instruct and motivate our athletes to achieve excellence in sports and academics. Our student athletes learn the valuable lessons of responsibility, discipline, and teamwork, and they have a lot of fun!

Please see our school websites for specific athletic schedules. Whether you’re a fan in the stands or a player on the field, we appreciate your participation. See you at the game!
