The School environment is safe and caring. I truly think the administration changed that happened a few years ago, changed the school system. It was a pleasure sending my child to CCAMS. I think changes still need to be made to the administration like getting a more caring dean of student or more after school programs and more electives.

In my opinion its a great school my kids don't complain about going they love their teachers. What I personally like is that the teachers are always willing to work with the kids they make learning fun which makes kids want to be part of the classroom. Also like dress code school shouldn't be about fashion but about learning and not to forget grades online I really like that.

This school has a great cultural feel. The teachers are very attentive with the students. The leader Ms. Von Keltz is great! I do have a concern and that is with the school s dean of students, Mr. Schwartz is smart aleck with the students, on numerous occasions I have observed him speaking down to the children or answering to them as if they were adults. I have also experienced a few times where my children come home complaining about him and his ways. He needs to become more sensitive and respectful to the students. I also dislike the school shoe policy. Apparently the school doesn t allow students to wear any kind of shoe that s not a loafer even if it s snowing; I find this challenging when we live in Michigan with crazy weather and not enough time between school bells in the morning to changes shoes. Also there isn t a large variety of loafers for students at stores and their price is high for a pair of ugly shoes that children do not find comfortable and aren t versatile making parents spend money on a pair of shoe that can t be worn any other time. I really dislike that.

Cesar Chavez Academy has been going through many transitions to help each of our students succeed! There are many reviews that are old and outdated and they do not justify the achievements of the students and staff.

Me and my friend go to Cesar Chavez Middle School. We have never had any problem with gangs, violence, or teachers...Ever! i believe that every student has a chance to do good there. The school provides many after-school programs such as the yearbook club, basketball teams, and soccer teams. So think about coming to Cesar Chavez Middle School. It really is a great school.

I believe Cesar Chavez Middle School is a good school. I do believe the parents need to be more active in their students education. Many parents are not involved in the students education and that will make a huge impact on a students behavior. The parents dont give the teachers enough credit for the hard work they do, they have no idea what it is like teaching 25-32 students at a time. I believe the teachers and staff do a very good job and they watch the students the best they can. If the parents have a concern maybe they should volunteer to help, and spend a day at the school to see exactly how it is. It is a great place to send your child.

My child goes there I'm not to happy as a parent. I like some of the teachers they know what they are doing, but others seem they do not care about the kids. The staff need to have more control of whats going around school hours, to many fights and kids kissing every where you turn.

Cesar chavez is a great school, only if you don't have a Learning Disability. They don't have a special educational program, and they have very few Para Professionals, (and i mean very few), my son had a Para Pro for only part of one subject, and it was the class he didn't need help in.

I go there and they don't have a gym. Its a small school and theres not alot of students. We go outside almost everyday. Some of the teachers know how to deal with discipline, and others get angry very easily.
