The Atlas of Historic New Mexico Maps, produced with assistance from the New Mexico Humanities Council and the New Mexico Chapter of the National New Deal Preservation Association, lists a number of New Deal schools in Santa Fe, including Agua Fria.

Constructed in 1935-36, the original adobe five-room school has been added to over the years, changing considerably the historic footprint of the building. Today, only the southwest corner reveals its earlier design. The campus is currently closed (2015) and undergoing a $15 million project to construct a new school.
