Welcome to Dilcon Community School
Dilcon Community School, Inc. is located in a scenic volcanic butte area of the Navajo Reservation 40 miles north of Winslow, Arizona. The name "Dilcon" originated from a mountain ―"Tsejin Dilkon," meaning Smooth Mountain. The area is a high desert plateau at an elevation of 6,600 ft.
In the summer of 2003 Dilcon School had suffered some irreparable weather damage and had to be condemned for demolition. Dilcon Community School, Inc. was given the go ahead by BIA for new construction. In March 2008 construction began and was completed in July 2009. Our new school was dedicated on July 29, 2009. The state of the art building consists of a new gym, 16 classrooms, library, science lab, computer lab, common lunch area, food service area, music room and a residential living facility that houses 70 students.
