Navajo Preparatory School Reviews

Academics is really good but I would love to see more parent involvement. I have recently been accepted into the International Baccalaureate Programme and I feel great. Navajo Prep is the only school that offers the IB Programme to Native American students, and it’s something to be proud to be part of. The school overall is very welcoming and challenging. Paying tuiton is 100% worth it. I feel like I am preparing for college and knowing what my expectations are. The school also hosts activities out of the classroom such as Mountain Day, Snow Day and Hozho Naasha Week; which teach students about Navajo culture and skills needed for life. I love how much teachers at the school are involved with students and help them in any way they can with education. Clubs are also a big part of Navajo Prep, there are so many different clubs to be involved in. Being a residential student on campus too, Residential Advisors(RA’s) are like second parents and the girls in the dorm become family.

I have spent my whole life at prep. 18 years to be exact. But I have spent the last 3 1/2 years for school based. I loved it, every day has only helped me more to better prepare myself for college. The best part was learning who I was, and that was being Native American. Throughout those years before Prep, I didn’t know my cultural side. When I came to Navajo Prep, that was one factor of choosing the school. Now that I’m in my last year of high school, I know more than I use to before. I know how to introduce myself in Navajo. I know the winter songs and the winter string games. I know what’s important and our morals, which will help me later in college when I need to reflect on my morals. I’m very great full for the opportunity Navajo Prep has offered me, and I will continue the teachings so our culture and Language does not die.
At my school the students and staff are very supportive. Since it is a residential school at times the dorms are closed just to see the sports play. Our classes and homerooms make posters and take them to the games. When it comes around the time for state for volleyball and basketball our school makes trips out to Albuquerque where the state finals are held. Out fitness programs are amazing, we have a weight room that open 2 hours a day and also have open gym every day after school. so I can say that our athletic and fitness is great at our school.
