The Division of City Schools, Navotas recently celebrated its 2nd founding anniversary on January 11, 2012. Two years ago, it became a separate division by virtue of a directive coming from the office of the then Secretary Jesli Lapuz.
The Division Office is temporarily housed in Bagumbayan Elementary School Compound, M. Naval Street, Sipac-Almacen, Navotas City, just a stones throw away from the Navotas City Hall. A plan to build the Division Office of DepEd-Navotas in Barangay San Jose is now underway.
