HOPI SCHOOL SYSTEM

Transitioning to a Unified, Collaborative, Academically Challenging, and Culturally Responsive

School System for Students of Hopi's Tribally Controlled Schools.

HOPI SCHOOL SYSTEM AT A GLANCE

The Hopi School System aims to provide students with an academically challenging, culturally responsive, and comprehensive

education system.  The Hopi School System will unify Hopi's Tribally Controlled Schools, and it will be overseen by the Hopi Board of Education (HBE), 

a Hopi Tribal Regulated Entity.

    

The HBE will provide consistency, educational leadership, and

accountability for all seven Hopi Tribally Controlled Schools: 

Moencopi Day School

Hotevilla Bacavi Community School

Hopi Day School

Second Mesa Day School 

First Mesa Elementary School

Keams Canyon Elementary School
