Navarro Elementary School is a pre-K through 3rd grade campus in the Navarro Independent School District (NISD) located just west of Seguin, Texas. Historically a small and rural district, NISD maintains strong ties to its agricultural heritage and long-standing community members, even with an increasing population due to growth from the San Antonio-Austin corridor.

The school is known for having very active parent participation and community support, both for classroom activities, as well as for events such as the annual Fall Festival, Literacy Cafe', and Jingle Bell Run. It is common to have volunteers in classrooms, supporting PTO initiatives, fundraising, and enhancing the overall school community. While the extent and quality of student-teacher relationships sets Navarro Elementary apart from other schools, a foundation of excellence is also provided through high quality Tier 1 instructional practices, ongoing staff development, prescriptive interventions, and 1:1 technology integration. Experienced teachers and staff members are in tune with the individual needs of students and fill gaps quickly due to their expertise. Explicit instruction in core subject areas ties to specific goals set by teachers and grade levels. Student outcomes are discussed in PLC settings where teachers can analyze assessment practices, instructional delivery, as well as depth and complexity. Social and emotional supports identify and address needs beyond an instructional focus, and positive behavior support strategies are a schoolwide commitment. In these ways, each child is held to high expectations and provided experiences to prepare them for a 21st century world.
