The Ysleta del Sur Pueblo Education Department was established to meet tribal citizens educational development needs. This department provides various educational support programs to assist tribal citizens to attain their educational goals. Partnership with the local school districts is key to providing our community with full support and a successful educational career. The Education Department aids tribal members to seek and obtain financial aid to attend accredited post-secondary educational institutions. The department also ascertains alternative sources of funding and education awareness campaigns.

The Pueblo has remained steadfast in its commitment to provide for the education of its tribal members. It has grown into a distinguished agency that has been commended for its improvements to tribal education and received national recognition by the Bureau of Indian Affairs Johnson-O’Malley Program. The department continues to serve as a model program for other Native American education programs. Trip to UTEP Sun Bowl
