Great school! There is a lot of construction going on but it all seems to work regardless. My daughter loves her teacher this year and last year. I can tell they care about my daughter and that's what matters most to me.

The school right now is a bit chaotic because of construction issues. The principal is wonderful!! The staff is friendly and the teachers are awesome. And to be honest how hard is it to understand any colored polo shirt and khaki, navy or black pants, skirts or shorts!!! What's more to explain??? And about the teachers not knowing how to control their students, that is absolutely untrue....maybe the real problem was that your children were out of control and might need a bit of structure and dicipline at home!!

My children attended Navajo from mid-April to June 2007. The school is HORRIBLE!!! Huge THANKS to Mr. Olney who adapted learning materials for my son! The office staff and principal are RUDE. They did not fully explain their dress code until a month had passed, then expected me to purchase new uniforms 2 weeks before school let out. Most of the teachers have zero control and are just BABYSITTERS!!!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Mexico used the New Mexico Standards-Based Assessment (NMSBA) to test students in grades 3 through 8, 10 and 11 in Reading and Math, and grades 4, 7 and 11 in Science. The NMSBA did not report Science results in 2012. As of 2012, New Mexico no longer uses the New Mexico High School Standards Assessment (NMHSSA) to test high school students, and instead uses the NMSBA to test high school students. The NMSBA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Mexico. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
