Welcome to the Home of the Fighting Tigers

Welcome to the online home of Capitan Elementary School, where our ongoing community effort brings the best education possible for the children in our care. We are one of three schools in the Capitan Municipal Schools District in the Capitan Corridor of historic, rural Lincoln county in central New Mexico.

Though our community is small, we have a big heart. We hope you will enjoy browsing our website to find out what makes us special.
