Dzilth-Na-O-Dith-Hle Community School is located 25 miles south of Bloomfield, NM on the east side of Highway 550 near one of the sacred mountains on the Navajo Indian Reservation. We serve 5 Chapters: Counselor, Nageezi, Huerfano, Nenahnezad, and Shiprock. The school was built in 1968 under the operation of BIA and in 2005 it converted to grant school status. Educational services are provided from FACE through eighth grade.
Our school continues to make academic improvements to meet the rigor of the Common Core State Standards. Our academic program is unique with self-contained classrooms from K-2nd and specialized classes from 3rd-8th grade. Specials classes include; Culture, Physical Education, Library, Art and Computer. Related services are provided to students within the Special Education Program.
Students continue to make academic growth and take ownership of their educational goal setting. Parent Involvement is encouraged and I welcome ll parents into our school to discuss any concerns that may have an impact on their child's learning. Special activities are scheduled monthly throughout the school year to increase parent involvement.
Our athletic program is a member of the Jr. High League for Navajo Schools which allows our students to have an opportunity to participate in volleyball, basketball, flag football, softball, or baseball.
We have an on-site FACE Program which includes both a Home Base and Center Base program component. The Home Base Program has parent educators to make home visits in the community to assist with Early Childhood from prenatal to children who are of 3 years of age. The Center Base classroom implements an early childhood curriculum for children 3-5 years of age. The Adult Education Program has helped many adults get their GED High School equivalency.
Our Residential Program houses students from 1st-12th grade. Students from 9th-12 grade attend Bloomfield High School. They have a variety of evening activities and tutoring to assist students in their educational endeavors and developing social skills.
