Cesar Chavez High School Reviews
Cesar Chavez is a school whose students need to be forced to look beyond
Cesar Chavez has heart. There are so many kids that have plans, dreams, ambitions and yet they are overshadowed by the majority that don't seem care. going to Chavez now, I wish that there was more motivation. Sure, it makes it easy to point out the ones who are obviously going places, but it's unfair for the brilliant minds who hide behind the latest trends and the bad influences of certain social groups. This school needs reform. However, I do not mean fire all the teachers and start over, I mean to make it harder on the students. Not that I would be excited to have stricter policies, but it would be a great wake up call to those just going with the flow and not willing to look beyond the four years of "Jail"
CCHS is a great school and I learned alot. The SLCs are cool because I participated in the Health SLC and did an internship at a medical office. When I was there we had the largest graduating class and bext CAHSEE test scores in our district. I woul like to see more teachers involved with students like my teacher Mrs. Marsden.
i believe that chavez in a good school with bad children.i do not agree with the annual freshman friday.were they dump the smallest 9th graders and poor and dump food and milk on them.it is not acceptable and i don not agree with it and action should be taken.
