October 3rd marks the halfway point of the first semester. Students will be on vacation from school for a week at the end of the 9 week term, although we will still be busy with our fall sports and activities program. Cesar Chavez High School will hold Academic Recovery for students who wish to pursue extra studies.

We offer outstanding academics, with one of the largest and most successful Advanced Placement programs in the district, allowing students to earn college credit in nineteen different courses. We have an excellent tutoring program and support the success of our ninth graders with our Freshman House. Students participate in our advisory program daily, allowing them individualized access to their teachers in the courses where they need the most support. Our AVID program promotes college readiness and teaches strong organization and study skills. Our students participate in a wide range of sports, clubs, and electives, including excellent programs in the fine arts, the performing arts, and JROTC. A student who is educated at Cesar Chavez gains a solid foundation in reading, writing, and math, as well as a thorough grounding in the technology necessary to succeed in the 21st century.Chavez graduates have gone on to attend such outstanding universities as Yale, Stanford, and MIT. Parents have the opportunity to participate in the American Dream Academy and Future Sun Devil Families sponsored through ASU, to learn to help their children prepare for a successful college experience. Our graduation rate and college attendance rates are high. We are proud of our students and believe that a Cesar Chavez High School education provides endless future opportunities for success.
