About MDS

Welcome to Moencopi Day School!

Located in Northern Arizona, on the Hopi reservation, Moencopi Day School offers a full slate of programming that exposes students to "World Class" opportunities in academics, the arts, fitness and sports, and technology in a family oriented setting and environment.

Moencopi Day School is dedicated to providing a challenging academic environment to all of its students in grades Kindergarten through Sixth grades. The Governing Board, Foster Grandparents, Community Volunteers, Classified and Certified Staff are here to prepare the students to be future ready and exceed the standards.

Moencopi Day School is committed to enhancing the classroom environment by installing Promethean Panels, Chromebooks, computers, and web based programs, such as Schoology, that will enable Tier 1 students to progress at their own pace.

Moencopi Day School believes in maintaining the Hopi Culture and Language. Every student is required to participate in classes that strengthen their usage of the Hopi spoken and written language. They will learn about the History of the Hopi people and develop agricultural skills to continue the self-sustaining ideology.

We are excited about the work ahead. We have a staff of highly qualified caring, compassionate and hardworking people who have high expectations and are honored to receive the privilege to educate your most precious commodity, your student.

Our beautiful campus is a place where students, staff, and parents feel safe and secure.
