Not if your child is white. They hate my kids. You never lay a hand on a child as a teacher... EVER!!

Everything but a few things are good about this school... They have great teachers, fun activities, very educational, and can help you get into a terrific collage. The only things that I don't like about this school is the dress code; uniform; tuck shirt in; no jackets on in class, and hide necklaces. Other than that, Cesar Chavez Academy is a wonderful school and I appreciate them helping me to be successful and make the best out of the best in life ! :)

Cesar Chavez Academy of Pueblo Colorado, This school has improved tremendously, my son was bullied in 3rd grade, but the no bullie policy has been working with great success. I recomend this school for anyone looking for success in their childrens academics.

There are a lot of unprofessional discussions about leadership in front of students and parents many times. Teacher's say negative statements about a student that were mean in front of their classmates.

I transferred my children out of this school during the drama with Hernandez. It's too bad other people got so greedy and forced him out after they seen the money and potential with the Goal Academy. They did have some wonderful teachers but Coach Lopez was a joke. My children played a game against CCA and Lopez was collecting money at the door still showing favoritism. $5 at the door unless you know Lopez then it's free.

CCA and DHPH are both outstanding schools. We have two daughters who have attended CCA since the 6th and 7th grade. This year our youngest will be in the 8th grade and our oldest will be attending DHPH in the 9th grade. CCA and DHPH have outstanding teachers.

I have two children that attend CCA. My son who is in middle school has attended since kindergarten and my daughter just finished first grade. This is an amazing school. The curriculum is top notch and so are the teachers. There is a strong sense of community and respect in this school. The teachers are dedicated to the success of our children and show it through their communication, guidance and support. My children are performing so well that my son is in the honors program and my daughter is reading almost two grade levels ahead of where she should be. I would not have my children attend any other school in this town.

My two children attend CCA. We have been very pleased with teachers and staff. My children are both excelling at a high level. Any concerns we have had have been addressed immediately. Teachers and staff are devoted to the students. The curriculum and extracurricular activities are awesome. Parental involvement is encouraged and welcome. Our experience with CCA has been awesome!

Cesar Chavez Academy is a real school. Like many others, it is what you make it. They had some bad, greedy leaders. They are gone, or on their way out! The teachers are all qualified, under Colorado law, to teach. Some of the greatest teachers I have ever seen didn't have degrees in education, but knew their subjects and could teach them. CCA is a school of choice. If you are so adamant that it is not a good school, then why are you making your son stay there? If all you stated was true, then what kind of parent are you for keeping him there? The truth is you have exagerrated your statements because of some issues you or your daughter have had, and you want to feel better by bashing the school. I pray that 'REAL' school has as many caring teachers as CCA!

Cesar Chavez Academy is a JOKE!!!! I wish I would have never enrolled my children there. I am so thankful that my daughter is going to high school next year where she will be going to a REAL school. Unfortunately my son will still be going there, but if the choice was mine he would be going to another school as well. I hope and pray that they close this school! The children will have a better chance instead of being taught by teachers who don't even have a degree in teaching.

Since my children have started here at the school i have had soo many issues with bulling! The 'hands off policy' is a joke. My six year old is constantly getting picked on and the follow thru with the staff is more stressfull. You know this schis used to be so highly recommended and was thought of very highly and thats the exact reson i sent my children there. What are we as parents supposed to do when our children are being bullied and the issues that come along with it? The recent issue with the 'code 98' was to parents that is was a 'standard Procedure' and that was no where near the truth! We were lied to by the school and our childern were affected by this !!! How are we supposed to trust the school with our children in knowing that our school has lied to us aboukindthings?

Cesar Chavez Academy is not as good as everybody makes it seem. The principal is not very attentive to parents needs and issues. Also, my doughter attended and said she hardly worked in anyof her classes. The students are also often rude and cliquey

My son transferred from Skyview in PW where we had nothing but problems and he was miserable. His is in the honors program, LOVES going to school and his teachers. We are very happy with this school. We do wish they would have kept Dr. Hernandez. We worry that without his vision, it will become just like any other school.

I am disappointed in this school. I was led to believe that this was a great school. What I witnessed first hand more than once was the teachers have no control over the students in the classrooms! I was amazed at the lack of respect for the teachers. The classrooms were a joke... very out of control and noisy.This is not the school for my kids. I actually want mine to be able to hear the teacher in order to learn.

Both of my children have attended CCA, and now one is at DHPH. Hopefully the new discipline program that has been initiated this year will remove any safety concerns. I have also been concerned about some of the bullying activity in the past, especially at the middle school level. I think that the success of the school, and subsequent popularity and rapid growth, has contributed to the problem with the influx of so many students who had not been 'schooled' in the lower grades. Hopefully the new programs will address these problems and correct them.

My son started off at CCA and now attends Dolores Huerta high. My experience with both school shas been nothing but positive. The education tha he is receiving is beyond compare. My daughter is in the 1st grade and with both my children the teachers have been the same, informative, supportive, and nurturing. I could not ask for a more positive learning environment! My kids, for the most part enjoy going to school.

My daughter has been at CCA since Kindergarten and has flourished under the teaching of the awesome staff at the school. At 8 years old my daughter has tested in the high school level in her reading and has been placed in advanced math to keep her working at her level of ability. One of the best things the school does for the children is they do not level them according to grade or age but level of ability, so children who are advanced have the additional work they need and students who need extra time and help receive what they need. I would highly recommend CCA to any family. Every child deserves the education my children are receiving there.

This school is the greatest school in Pueblo. I have one daughter that goes to the High School, and another that goes to CCA. I know that this school will give my daughters the best education they will ever receive. Though this school is critizied by others, it stands strong, showing the commiunity that everything is possible, and if the other schools would just follow the curriculum of this school, they could be very successful.

(I am not a parent, I am a student at CCA) I went to CCA for fifth and sixth grades and I know that this school is awesome! I absolutely loved it. I enjeyed wearing uniforms because if everybody wears the same thing, you can't be judged by your clothing (for example: whether you are rich or poor people can not tell by your clothing) And most of the teachers practice 'hands-on' methods to teach. If needed, the teachers will help the students individually. So I give Cesar Chavez Academy a five star rating.

This school really cares about its students. Teachers at this school are the most dedicated thoughout the district. Our school has faced many problems because of the success we have had but that does not keep us down. Teachers respect their students and the students respect their teachers!

Truly the greatest and most dedicated school on the district. Often facing many hardships, because of this dedication and success. Example of people who try something different, make a change and are pushed back at every turn, but still persevere in the face of adversity.
