About Navajo Elementary

Navajo Elementary is located in Albuquerque's south valley. Navajo is a rich community filled with tradition and sense of family. Navajo Elementary first opened in 1967 and was originally "a school with no walls". Originally Navajo was a building with pods of classrooms. In recent years Navajo has been reconstructed in phases with more still to come as we continue to work to become the top school in Albuquerque!
