Rock Point Secondary School
Rock Point Secondary School is committed to academic excellence while valuing Navajo language and culture. We prepare our students for the global community while honoring their identities as individuals, representatives of their families, Tribes, and proud members of our country.
We believe that our students' success is tied to their cultural heritage and are dedicated to preserving it. We create a safe and inclusive environment where students can celebrate their heritage, thrive and become confident, engaged citizens.
Rock Point Secondary School, we equip our students with the skills and
knowledge needed to succeed personally, academically, and
professionally, while honoring their unique cultural backgrounds.
Welcome to Rock Point Community School, a K-12 day school that serves about 400 students from neighboring communities such as Round Rock, Rough Rock, Mexican Water, and Sweetwater. Our school's mascot is the sacred Cougar that represents the HonaÌ ghaÌ ahnii clan group. Established in 1935 by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), our school building was made of red sandstone that surrounds our beautiful community and still stands on the west end of the campus.
In 1972, our governing board established a contract with the BIA after the Public Law 93-638 went into effect, allowing local communities to control their schools. As a result, we established our own curriculum, hired our own teachers, and made DineÌ language and culture the focal point of literacy and other academic areas.
Our geographic location holds stories of historical significance, such as being considered a valley of cornfields, where rock formations represent cornstalks, and deep canyons represent the vines of squash, watermelons, and cantaloupes. At Rock Point Community School, we take pride in educating children with the same delicate care and attention given to the growth of corn.
