Welcome to GHS!

Yá'át'ééh! Ganado High School is the cornerstone of the community in Ganado, Arizona. Located in Apache County, in the northeastern corner of the state, Ganado is a small community with traditional Navajo values. We focus on the whole child, encouraging our students to keep their roots in our culture while broadening their horizons as they look toward the future.

We invite you to learn more about our school and our community. Our administration and teachers are here to work with you as we develop a true partnership in the education of your child. We have a variety of programs available to our students, so they can develop into well-rounded individuals.

Ganado High School (GHS) has a dedicated and passionate faculty, supportive parents, and creative, energetic students. We are going to do great things together.

We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful, and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with special events, extracurricular clubs and activities, and athletics teams certain to encourage our Hornets to be involved and stay connected!

We look forward to a very positive and productive year together! We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events as often as possible. We want, we need, and we value your involvement and support in your child’s education. Your active participation is key to the success of your Hornet scholar during his/her high school years.
