From the Principal

    Mrs. Rachel Chunglo, Principal  


    My name is Rachel Chunglo, and I am the principal at Abia Judd Elementary School.  This is my 13th year with Prescott Unified School District and my 3rd year as principal at Abia Judd.  I myself am also an AJ parent.  I have four daughters, three of whom have gone through our school and one who is currently jaguars.  My children have been given the best foundation for their learning at Abia Judd and I am confident that you will feel the same.

    Our excellent and highly-qualified faculty is dedicated to providing a meaningful educational experience for our students and their families. Abia Judd does this by providing a safe, nurturing and caring environment to enable students to develop the desire and passion for learning. Our Mission Statement of the ABC’S frames how we work together to move our school forward – Achieving, Believing, Caring, Sharing.  In 2021 Abia Judd was recognized at the national level for being an Exemplary School of Character Counts.  In both 2022 and 2023 we were recognized as a “National Showcase School” for Capturing Kids' Hearts.  

    Abia Judd has consistently been one of the highest-achieving schools in northern Arizona. We have received numerous national and state awards, such as “National School of Excellence” and “A+ School of Excellence”. The students of Abia Judd perform very well on state standardized testing when compared to schools in our area and across the state.

    The partnership between families and school is more important than ever.  Communication is the key to your student’s success and we at Abia Judd want to partner with you to ensure the best education for your student. I want to encourage you to be a part of the Abia Judd community as often as you can.  This can be done by volunteering in your child’s classroom or with our PTO on ways to best help our school.  To find out more about our PTO please email them at

    We are grateful that you have chosen Abia Judd for your child’s education and we are excited for this upcoming school year.

    Mrs. Chunglo was named the 2024 Rookie Principal of the Year by the Arizona School Administrators.  Congrats!
