The school is a single structure with a total area of 40,500 square feet located on a 150 acre site on the Navajo Reservation. The design meets the State of Arizona facility square footage requirements while incorporating culturally significant features and design elements.
Classrooms are arrayed in a clockwise orientation in ascending grade levels. The circulation sequence begins with kindergarten on the southeast and ending with 5th grade at the northwest. The site arrangement provides excellent visibility and access from adjacent highways.
Project planning involved close coordination with the superintendent of schools, school administration, and Indian Wells Chapter Residents.
