There are several resource teachers available at various elementary, middle, and high school to provide academic and cultural enrichment to Native American students.

The Indian Education Department (IED) was established as part of the Albuquerque Public School district in 1974, with the primary purpose for advocacy and representation for the 115 different American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) Tribes enrolled in the school district. There are approximately 5,650 or 5.1% AI/AN students currently enrolled in APS.
