Tsehootsooi Dine Bi'olta' is an inspiring school that instills Dine Culture and Dine philosophy into the school curriculum. With dedicated and highly qualified teachers who are bilingually endorsed, to read, write and speak the Dine language teachers devote their time to students, parents and community in the overall mission of the school, revitalization of the Dine Language. Students enrolled at TDB are more confident, have a higher cultural identity and come out speaking the Dine Language. TDB is truly a unique school that challenges and instills family togetherness-k'e. A school of choice, and a school any student will truly invest in.

An excellent school that helps preserve the Navajo language, yet also excels with state testing. Is but one of a handful of Native American immersions schools in the county.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Arizona used the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10. GreatSchools' profiles currently show AIMS mathematics, reading and writing results. 2013 AIMS grade 10 results represent on-track 10th graders for the 2013 test year. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona learning standards. Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.
