Navarre School opened in 1953 and currently serves students in grades 5-8. The school is named after Pierre Navarre, the first settler of European descent to arrive in St. Joseph County. He was a well-educated man who worked for years trapping and trading furs among local Native Americans. Navarre established a trading post along a Native American trail and lived there with his wife, a Potawatomi woman named Angelique. This is considered to be the first permanent structure built in St. Joseph County.
