Leupp Boarding School was established in 1960 as a K-8 Bureau of Indian Affairs school and filled to capacity by serving a large number of students from various areas of the Navajo Nation reservation. As schools were being built in other parts of the Navajo Reservation, enrollment declined, leaving behind empty buildings. The local community negotiated with Tooh Dine Industries, Inc., a high tech electronic entrepreneur, to lease one of the dormitories as an employment site. This site now provided employment for surrounding community members.
In 1986, Leupp Boarding School became a K-12 contract school under the 638 Indian Self-Determination Acts. In 1988, the school became a grant school an officially became known as Leupp Schools, Inc. (LSI). Leupp Schools Inc., as a grant Bureau-funded school coordinates activities and regulations as set forth by the Office of Indian Education Program. Implemented into the school’s rules and regulations are requirements set forth by Every Student Succeed Act (ESSA), the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA), the Elementary and Secondary Education Action (ESEA) and the Native Star. Leupp Schools Inc. also holds proper student counts, holds standardized testing and abides by Special Education criteria to further meet the Federal Programs requirements.
In the fall of 2008, Leupp Schools, Inc. opened its new academic and gymnasium/cafeteria buildings for K-12 to accommodate 380 students. In the spring of 2009, the school opened the new residential hall. The residential hall is capable of accommodating up to 98 students. The facility also has a Hogan, a dome-structured library, and 20 unit staff housing. The school serves the communities of the identified three Chapters: Tsidiitoii, Leupp, Tolani Lake as well as surrounding communities such as Coalmine, Dilkon and Native American families living in Flagstaff and Winslow who prefer to have their children stay in the dormitory rather than attend border town schools. Buses travel northwest to Grand Falls,; southwest of Leupp toward Canyon Diablo; east of Tsidiitoii, northeast of Tolani Lake; south of Winslow, and other local routes. Buses also travel to the communities; Black Falls, Grand Falls, and Sand Springs to pick up students.
