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.
this school is absolutely amazing... the teachers are amazing instructors, they really care about the kids, the curriculum is outstanding, my son had some problems in a different school (he was being bullied) but CCA has a strict no bullying policy.. my son and i love everything about CCA!!!
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.
CCA is a great school i feel cca has taught my kids how to be great leaders. Dr.hernandez has made this school the best in pueblo.He cares about my kids!! Also he wants all kids to sucseed in life!!!!!!! i love cca:)
I love it in every way! My childs happy, which in return makes me happy!!!
This school safty is unexceptible the kids all run to the buses of all ages no supervision.Class changes no supervision.The Csap is all practice over and over .Some of the kids cant spell correctly for there age groups.Bulling is bad and 25-28 students per class in a trailer is a little to much for anyone.No desk to put there item in they have to carry it home everyday.
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.
I attended this school for three years and have become a better student because of it!
The school has excellent teachers, academic 100% satisfactory but , safety 0% satisfactory, too many new students and they dont follow rules I wish cca can have 0 tolerance on buliness
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.
I think my school is probably the best school in Colorado. Now that im at CCA i learn a lot more and i have a lot more friends. So CCA keep up the good work!
This school has been a totally positive experience for my children. The teachers have excelled in all aspects and this brings a positive attitude to the class rooms.
