Dishchii’bikoh Community School, funded by the Bureau of Indian Affairs through the White Mountain Apache Tribe, is a grant school since 1991, and is served by a six-(6) member School Board elected by the parents of the Native American children who attend Dishchii’bikoh Community School.

Historically, the School has gone by the name of Cibecue Community School, operated by the Cibecue Community Education Board, Inc.  The name Dishchii’bikoh was taken to honor the Apache language and culture that is the heart of our community.

We have approximately 103 employees, and separate facilities for Elementary, Middle School and High School, all located on one campus on the outskirts of the town of Cibecue.
