Description

We are a private, non-profit residential and day school for children with disabilities located in the Capitol of the Navajo Nation in beautiful Northeastern Arizona. Our students range in age from 3 to 53 years old and their disabilities range from severe and profound to very high functioning. Many have complicated medical needs.

We are in the high desert so we experience all 4 seasons and have access to many of the country's most beautiful National Parks. This is a great opportunity for using your nursing experience and learning about other cultures.

In addition to the Education Dept, we have a Nursing Dept, Therapy Dept (with PT, OT and ST), a Residential Dept (for our Group Home students), Adaptive PE, an Adult Day program, Horticulture, Adaptive art program, Navajo culture and crafts dept, Greenhouse and many other activities for our students and clients.
