After spending four years at alternative schools, coming to Chavez is like a breath of fresh air. This is what elementary school should be! So happy to be here. Kids are kids here, not mini adults, and the diversity is great, many different people from many different walks of life. The school is bright and cheerful and so are the staff. It's is neat and clean and well-organized, and the children seem genuinely happy to be there. They have fun activities to involve the entire family. So glad to be away from the dark alternative schools which seem geared more toward adults with control issues than children who just want to be children and learn and make friends. Go Chavez!..
This school is my number one favorite! I have been to two elementary schools, the other of witch is closed, and currently attend Chavez. Excellent staff, though some rules are slightly controlling. But that is just my perspective. Healthy, organic, snack. We even had starfruit! Dedicated staff, wonderful extracurricular groups, including choice classes, peer-mediation, green team ( composting, recycling, etc. ) student leadership and more! The garden is amazing, and school food excluding meats and grains come from the garden. Earthquake proof, well built, and soaring high above standards in every area. This is truly, the school
This is an amazing school with a dedicated and positive staff and administration. My kids love to go to school every day. They really go the extra mile with both community involvement and family involvement. I am so happy to be part of the Chavez family.
Great facility, all the teachers I've had contact with are terrific, they really focus on what each child needs, whether it's extra help or more advanced work. PE, music, computer lab, library, all are great extras.
