Principal's Message

We are pleased that you have taken the time to visit the Cesar Chavez Academy website. At Cesar Chavez Academy, our mission is to provide a child-centered environment that promotes personal growth and lifelong learning. Cesar Chavez Academy is a K-8 school that offers a variety of curricular opportunities and our staff is committed to high expectations for all students by providing them with the best possible learning environment. We also encourage our students to believe in themselves, do their very best, and work hard in order to become successful at whatever they endeavor to do as they move through their K-8 experience.

At Cesar Chavez Academy, we not only want our students to be good thinkers, we also want them to be good people by making positive choices, being respectful, responsible and safe. We have high expectations for our students through the implementation of Common Core State Standards which calls on our students to problem solve with greater depth and complexity; by offering the AVID program in both elementary and middle school, we are preparing our students for the challenge of college and career readiness.

Cesar Chavez Academy is also dedicated to preparing our students technologically for the fast-paced world in which we live; we demonstrate this commitment to our students by providing them with four computer labs, two labs for our elementary students and two labs for our intermediate students.  Additionally, students are equipped with devices in each of their classrooms.

Because your child's years at Cesar Chavez Academy represent a time for growth and endless opportunities, your involvement is critical in making sure your child gets to school on time each and every day. Within the classroom, our teachers will challenge your child to think critically, pose questions, examine possibilities, and find solutions. We look forward to partnering with you to make your child's experience at Chavez productive and successful.
