Mary Velasquez-Riley 
Seven Mile Elementary School

The land on which Mary Velasquez Riley Seven Mile Elementary School is built was graciously donated to the Whiteriver Unified School District by Mary Velasquez Riley. Mary V. Riley was a strong advocate for tribal education and fought for better schools so that her Apache people could move into the future while preserving their tribal traditions.


In 2002-2003, the old Seven Mile Elementary building was torn down and rebuilt. Our school services grades Kindergarten through 5th grade, measures 74,000 square feet, and provides a secure and motivational environment for our students. The school includes 28 classrooms, special education rooms, offices, a gymnasium, cafeteria, library, and playing fields.


Currently our school is still expanding and growing as our enrollment reaches 500+ students! Mary Velasquez Riley Seven Mile School is a wonderful place where children, teachers, and support staff meet tomorrow’s education challenges.

We are the Seven Mile Wildcats!
