Who We Are

A bicultural public high school designed for Tohono O'odham youth and Native students interested in a college prep curriculum sponsored through the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools

Ha:ṣan Preparatory & Leadership School is designed to serve as an academically rigorous, bicultural, and community-based high school for Native youth. By infusing all aspects of the educational experience with elements of O'odham language and Native history, the school will nurture individual students, helping them become strong and responsible contributors to their communities.

* College Prep Curriculum Courses at Ha:san School meet all Arizona State Standards. The curriculum is especially designed for college bound students providing for Arizona State University requirements. We believe all students benefit from high teacher and staff expectations. In order to insure academic success for all students, tutoring and after school programs are offered.

* Knowledge of Tohono O'odham Language & Native History Ha:san School is committed to helping students develop healthy self-worth and a strong sense of identity through promoting O'odham language and Native history. While meeting all state standards, Ha:san infuses O'odham and Native content and materials throughout the curriculum. In addition to this integral role in the curriculum, Ha:san is committed to providing a rich climate of O'odham and Native scholarship.

* Individualized Study Plans We believe that each student has unique educational needs and desires. All students deserve individual attention in order to make choices about their future and have the skills to bring these dreams into reality. Each student at Ha:san School has an individualized study plan designed to meet his or her own goals and maximize their potential.

* Sponsor Leadership It is the philosophy of Ha:san School that family involvement is vital to the success of a student. Parents are of the utmost importance in the education of their children. As Sponsors, family members are invited and expected to provide leadership in the development of individualized study plans and college/vocational planning as well as volunteering at the school in meaningful ways.

* Hands-On Learning We believe that learning is more meaningful when the emphasis is placed on real world projects which build upon connections between the classroom content areas. In order to maximize the value of what is taught in the classroom, students spend a considerable amount of time studying outside of the classroom through field trips and projects.

* College Counseling, Admission, & Support We believe that all students can be successful in college. Each student has an opportunity to be adequately prepared for admission to the college of his or her choice. Each student has full staff support in the process of applying for and receiving admission and scholarships to college. Students will receive extensive preparation for the ACT and/or SAT. Additionally, it is a primary goal of Ha:san School to establish support systems for Ha:san graduates once they are in college
