Ganado Unified School District is located in Ganado, Arizona, Apache County. The district includes four schools: Ganado High School, Ganado Middle School, Ganado Intermediate School [1] and Ganado Primary School. Ganado Primary School is known for effectively using a holistic approach to language and culture [2] and as "one of the best examples of a school culture that supports professional development".[3]

Nearly 100 percent of the students in the district are Navajo, who speak Diné as their native language. This affects the learning environment in many ways. For example, 68 percent of Ganado Intermediate School's fourth, fifth, and sixth graders are classified as Limited-English Proficient.[4]
