Open Quote I've loved this school from the first day I walked in to tour! Friendly and helpful front desk staff, great leadership and excellent teachers. The community here is down to earth, kind and no nonsense. I appreciate the diversity of this school as I feel it mirrors real life. Both of kids have gone to school here and both score Highly Proficient on the AZ Merits AND genuinely nice humans. I highly recommend you stop by and see for yourself! Close Quote

Open Quote Overall school is average. STEM program available good. Special Ed teacher here is not good. She is not experienced and does not work directly with the children. She has no idea what the kids are doing. Her aides do most of the work and she lacks maturity to be working with children in SPED. Aides lack training in SPED they only take a couple classes. Very poor when helping with academics only focused on social. Close Quote

Open Quote My children have been attending Navajo Elementary since they were in Kindergarten and my oldest is in 5th grade. This is the most underrated school in the district! The staff are wonderful and so involved in the student's education. In addition their iSTEAM academy is one of a kind. Close Quote

Open Quote Excellent and dedicated staff. 21st Century learning with the use of STEAM approach. My child was in fifth grade learning well beyond the standards of his age. He is prepared for real world careers through technology and problem solving. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
