Naawan is home to the Mindanao State University at Naawan campus, a unit of the Mindanao State University System. MSU-Naawan started out as a science field laboratory of the university's Main Campus in Marawi City, Lanao del Sur in the 1960s and 70s. It was later upgraded as a research arm and with the collaboration of the Mindanao State University College of Fisheries, officially opened the School of Marine Fisheries Technology in 1981, graduating its first batch of university graduates in 1985. As an autonomous external campus and distinct unit of the University System, it took the name MSU-Institute of Fisheries Research & Development and directly supervised the 'original' Naawan High School (later called MSU-Naawan Fisheries High School) and presently known as MSU-N Integrated Developmental School (MSU-N-IDS).
The Naawan Central School etched a mark in the national scene when its children's choir won the top prize in NAMCYA Children's Choir Finals at the Cultural Center of the Philippines in 1987
