I think Hopi Day School is a great school, for all parent considering taking your children to this school, I highly recommend it!! Its a great place to learn, they always make sure the children are well taken care of and always keep an eye out for any bad bahavior! I,myself attended this school and now I live in Phoenix, Az and im a nurse for the IHS here. I was in cross country @ this school, i enjoyed it very much. I got along great with all my teachers, they offer tutoring eveyday if you dont understand the subject in class and they work with you and teach you what you need to know or what your struggling with! Hopi Day School is located in Kykotsmovi, they also have buses that go to Hotevilla and to Keams Canyon and everywhere else between so children have no problems getting to school. I hope I met your interest and hope you recommend this school to anyone interested! Thank You and have a great day!!

I worked at Hopi Day School many years and I've never worked for a better principal than Dr. Thomas. He works extremely hard, literally twelve hour days. He does the budgets and always finds money for new equipment and the latest technology. HDS strives to be the best school in academics and the test scores were very strong - with improvements each year. The govenor of the state gave the school an award for its high scores on the SAT. The school is old - a historical landmark actually, but comfortable. Each teacher has an aide, usually Hopi, to teach language and culture. Parental involvement is not high - mostly concerned with sports but things were improving while I was there. If there are any negatives, I believe it's from the community which is sometimes difficult to please. He retired three times and was asked back.

There are some very good and dedicated teachers there, but it could be a better school with a new, younger principal who actually listens to staff and parents.

I was a teacher at Hopi Day School and found John Thomas to be one of the most dedicated principals I've ever worked for. He took a pay cut in order to give the students more. He was the most dedicated principals I've ever encountered over the past decade.

Great teachers and TAs, but lousy principal--JOhn Thomas is an unprincipled liar who lacks integrity, has broken laws, and has seen a number of excellent staff members resign in protest of his actions. He needs to be fired.

Some effective teachers. Good academic program, but very very poor counseling services. Laws are broken (alcohol use) and the principal turns his head. The community wants him out!!!! I wouldn't send my child to this school again until he leaves. He is WAY over the hill, and needs to leave.
