McNary is a small public elementary school on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation in the beautiful White Mountains of central-eastern Arizona. The school is located in McNary, a town with a rich history which centers around a once thriving lumber industry, as well as the traditions of the White Mountain Apache Tribe.
The district, which is the former home of McNary High School, now serves students in grades K-8. Along with the relatively new school building, the historic McNary Gym which has hosted many exciting athletic events in past decades has been preserved, to the delight of residents in the surrounding towns in the White Mountain community.
Although McNary is a relatively small school, we offer a variety of programs to our Native American students. These activities may be viewed on the available links. As you browse the site, the unique cultural identity of our students will be evident. Against this backdrop of Native tradition, McNary students are educated in an environment which offers the latest teaching materials and research-based instructional strategies provided by a dedicated professional staff. Our school family works together to create a quality school experience for each child.
Again, it is our hope that you will enjoy your visit to our website!
