Watch out for open enrollment, it attracts every problem kid from all over Stockton. The administration does not deal with disruptive kids decisively and that leads to chaos in classrooms. Teachers watch out, you will be blamed for actions of these disruptive students. The administration hires and employs teachers who do not have the right credential for what the will teach. Teachers watch out, your license might be on the line.
I was the in the First Graduation class of 2008, and also one of the first two grades to go here. This school is amazing and the teachers are very student oriented. I don't know what it is about this school but the teachers are definitely doing things more for the kids than worrying about getting paid. This school has had the largest graduating class since 2008 in SUSD. This is also the only SUSD school that offers 4x4 scheduling so you get 80 credits done instead of 60 a year like at the other 3 high schools. By the time you are a Senior, you only have 2 classes you need to graduate. The awesome thing about this 4x4 program is that since you only need those 2 classes to graduate if you passed all your classes is that you can start going to Delta College during your senior year and get ahead in college. You also have time to take a third year language and math to get rid of that college requirement.This school is famous for their Great Titan Band.If you want your child in a great music program, this is it.They do competitions in Santa Cruz, Stockton, Merced,Oakland's holiday parade, and sometimes Disneyland.Great Alumni support even though there's only 4 graduating classes so far.
im a senoir at this School '10!!! an i dont have nothing bad to say about it!! it's a freat school teachers show they care and help out they are very involved with the us students and want us to succeed...the security is great to they are equal!! LOVE CCHS!!! THIS SCHOOL GAVE ME THE OPPURTUNITY TO GRADUATE AN I TOOK IT!! happy i moved from my old HS...
I can talk to the principal if I need to and I see him around the campus. I had a senior in 09 and seeing those students hug him shows he is involved. They have kept the performing arts which is awesome and kept my boys from dropping out since they could not do sports due to grades. Even though there was a gpa for the music program they tried to work with them and one actually got his grades up and received a scholarship to the local junior college in music. They are strict with dress code which is great and they require and give respect with the students. When we have had a problem it has been dealt with. They are short staffed like most schools and the music dept has lost all the money for buses for competition but they are trying to get businesses to help compensate.
as a proud member of the cchs class of 09 i would like to say that cesar chavez high school is an amazing place to attend. the security is high and the staff actually cares. cchs's schedual helps students learn more and focus on school work.
