Welcome to Kayenta Elementary School

Home of the Broncos

Welcome to the online home of the Broncos! Our elementary school in northern Arizona serves kindergarten through fourth grade students in the community of Kayenta. Kayenta has been a wonderful place to live and learn for decades, but our school has come a long way from the little, one-room schoolhouse in 1940. That little building, near the Kayenta Trading Post, could only serve 26 students. Today, you can hear the sounds of over 600 happy children engaged in learning every time you walk through our doors!

We invite you to spend a few moments browsing our new site. Here you will be able to find information about school events, menus, after-school activities, parental involvement, and many other items of interest. Let us know if you have additional questions; we look forward to serving you!

A Message from Our Principal

Dear Community Members,

Welcome to Kayenta Elementary School—home of the Broncos. I am Steve Myers and I serve this community as the principal of KES. Our team of caring educators and committed staff work each day to ensure all students in our school earn a quality education, deepen their knowledge and use of the Dine language and culture, and grow as good citizens in our Kayenta community. We seek to become partners with our parents and guardians in a joint effort to see every child become the person he or she wishes to be. We are humbled by the opportunity and responsibility to play such an important role in developing future generations of leaders, parents, and citizens for our community. Together we can provide the necessary foundational academic, cultural, and social skills our students will need throughout their lives to meet the unique challenges each generation will face.  Again, welcome to our KES family. We look forward to meeting you all soon.


Steve Myers
