Map of Navarro High School address.

July 10, 2013
Navarro High School is currently rated #5 in San Antonio and surrounding area, just behind Alamo Heights and a few of the Specialty schools in the area. Ranked in the top 10% of all Texas HS and maintaining National Recognition, Navarro's reputation is impeccable. Having moved into the district from out of state, 5 yrs ago, with a good school district in mind as a priority, we have been pleased year after year. With exceptional teachers and support staff and an administration that has preformed at award winning levels, the children of Navarro are a priority. Navarro strives to prepare students as well rounded, college bound students. The number of students attending college on scholarship and almost 0 drop out rate is impressive. While sports are a focal point, the Band and Arts programs are becoming just as important as the number of participating students are steadily increasing. Experience with all of the above has been exceptional. With children attending the Int. and the HS, parental involvement is encouraged and well received by administrators and teachers. With children who had previously only attended private schools, Navarro sets the bar high for public schools.

The last 2 reviews are surprising. This has not been my experience or those of my friends I have spoken with. Both my children have attended Navarro schools since 1st grade. My youngest is about to graduate. I had 2 children on different ends of the academic and social spectrums. My oldest was at the top of the class and involved with everything Navarro. My oldest was well prepared and has had no problems academically at a prestigious university. My youngest has learning and socialization problems. That child will be well prepared to attempt community college or trade school. I can't thank the teachers at Navarro enough for the time my children were there. The school is not perfect but, the resources and caring staff are available. Are there bad teachers and administrators? Yes, but they are becoming fewer and fewer as I've seen through the years. In the years my children have been attending this small school district, we have seen Navarro continue to strive to be the best small school for education in the area. You can go to bigger schools in the area for more choices but Navarro offers the small community feel with plenty of opportunities for parent and student involvement.

I have to say that I agree with the reviewers who are less that satisfied with Navarro. I am a certified teacher who knows how a good school district is run. I moved both of my kids out of Navarro (my oldest was there for 7 years) and they are MUCH happier. They are receiving a far superior education at their new public school. I was repeatedly disappointed in the treatment of students towards other students. I was also disappointed that too many teachers in the district did not want to teach, refused to answer student questions during class, and refused to send home graded papers/test so you could understand what your child needed to work on. This is a cookie cutter school district. Your child must fall into their realm of education or your child will get left behind or will mark time when they could be learning MUCH more. I had one of each! It was very frustration. My last complaint is their sports programs. If you have a girl who is into sports....good luck! Their programs are ALL about the boys!

The teachers at this school not only ignore thier students; They assume that the reason we dont understand thier lessons is because we're not listening good enough, Which is not the case. They do not go at the students pace, they go as quickly as they can so they can finish. if you are failing, they blame it on you. If your parents call and ask why you arent doing good acidemically, they'll say its the your fault because you didnt come in early in the morning to get extra help, when in reality, if you DO come in, the teacher is either late or says she/he is too tired and to come back tomorrow. Bullying among students is terrible at this school. If you report it to the faculty, they dont care. I have reported having been bullied 9 times and they still havent helped me. i hate this school.

Not a friendly school. The principal and teachers do not want parents around. Students are bullied by teachers. The sports department always comes first. We are more disappointed every year.

This is honestly one of the best public schools out there, the balance between academics & sports is incredible. The school is not focused 100% on sports -- it has a great balance between both brain & brawn if you will. The teachers here are well, they should be professors really. The leadership in this school is tremendous. Their advanced placement courses are expansive & very detailed as well as their athletic program. The teachers seem to be genuinely interested in their students & their well being. The faculty is very well prepared & trained. I can't say enough good things about this school. It is in a very quaint location & the students there are for the most part very well mannered. There is a total lack of malicious behavior from students which is very rare in this day & time. Due yourself a favor & enroll your child.
