Its boundaries stretch over 1,200 square miles across the city of Albuquerque and to the Sandia Mountains to the east, the Sandia and Isleta Indian reservations to the north and south and beyond the volcano cliffs to the west.

More than 84,000 students are taught by 6,000 teachers in 142 schools. APS is among the largest urban school districts in the nation and is Albuquerque's number two job provider with 14,000 full and part-time employees.
