Residential Program at Wingate Elementary School


Wingate Elementary School’s Residential Program guides students through the process of becoming productive, self-sufficient, and responsible citizens. Students in grades 1st - 8th receive academic services in their temporary homes on-campus Sunday - Friday during the academic school year. Student success depends on the life-learning lessons and coping skills used to meet all social, emotional, spiritual, cultural, and educational needs.

This safe living-and-learning environment instills holistic life skills in our students which prepares them to receive and utilize a quality education. The specific needs of our Navajo students are addressed on a consistent basis in one-on-one, family, and group settings as they are deemed necessary and beneficial. Residential students participate in interactive and engaging presentations by community entities and on educational field trips.
