Navarro Early College High School is committed to a culture of academic excellence with a tradition grounded in Pride, Respect, and Responsibility.
A Quest For Excellence
For almost a half a century, Navarro Early College High School has served the Austin community by providing leadership in academics, athletics, and extracurricular activities. The highly skilled and educated faculty and staff of Navarro have been consistent over the years in training top citizens and community leaders. Navarro, a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon School in 1997, offers a broad base of opportunities for every kind of student, with programs that are competitive on both state and national levels.
Established in 1961 as the sixth high school in the Austin Independent School District, Navarro ECHS was originally located in the building which now houses Burnet Middle School. The current facility, opened in the fall of 1966, is located on Payton Gin Road, north of Research Boulevard, between North Lamar Boulevard and Burnet Road. Navarro ECHS is the northernmost AISD high school.
When originally opened, Navarro’s student body was virtually all Caucasian. Over the years, however, the school's ethnic diversity has evolved to the point where Navarro more closely reflects an international population with over 53 countries represented, making it the most diverse high schools in Austin.
From National Merit Scholars to nationally acclaimed teachers, coaches, and organization directors, Navarro has had a profound and positive impact on the fabric of life in and around Austin for over 40 years.
