Parent. We moved here 3 years ago from an other town, I realy had doughts at first but let me tell you that the teachers are awsome, the r.o.t.c staff there is extra awsome, with out there helo my son could have gotten lost in the crowd, and peer pressure, beingbfrom a small town then comming into houston your child could go eaither way if not guied correctly. I couldn't tell you enough how amazing the r.o.t.c staff was to me and my son, gosh they stuck by my son like they knew us all our lives, now thats what I call love, thank you so much sgt. And major for all you have done for my son, myself and all the others yall have helped!! Keep up the good work and god bless ya'll.

My child is currently attending Chavez, and so far i have been very pleased. The teachers are good and the principal is great. He is very supportive of the students and he is involved. I have seen him attend many functions, football games ,band , and at theater presentations.Chavez has many wonderful programs for the students,To name a few the band who won The Opus Holland Award of $25,000.00,the theater program and FFA . I .was impressed to hear that more than 900 students attended class during the 2009 Christmas break. Chavez has many wonderful programs and teachers who care and who are leading our children.I hope and pray that they will help our children succed in high school and prepare them for college and the future. Go Lobos!

My daughter teaches art there, and loves it. It's a friendly school that serves a largely Hispanic neighborhood and treats everyone with respect.

I would like to voice that Chavez is under staff. I have been a parent that is very much involved with my daughters education. That school has many issues.

I am a student and I can say that Chavez isn't the school that I thought it was going to be. The dress code in my opinion is stupid and you get into trouble as quick as wearing capris to school. Although some of these things may be for safety purposes others are just down right dumb.

This school has been in existence for 5 or 6 years and has already had 4 principals. It has the potential to be a great school, but there is no consistency from year to year.

I am a student at chavez high and I would have to say that I do enjoy the learing experence that I have so far recived at chavez high. this school is one of the places I can call home. I like the academic programs given to us and the different programs provided for us. as for the parent involvment I think that there can be more help on that. availability of the extracurricular activities in no limited to basic activities the fun we have learning different skills is wonderful to have.

I know that most teachers at Chavez work their butts off. The technology is amaging. Kids have access to everything. I would love more parents to be involved. The libary is one of the best selections I have seen. The staff is helpful. Of course, it is far from perfect.

The regular program needs improvement but the magnet program is fairly good. My sons SAT scores and his grades compare to bellaire and debakeys average. If the entire school was like the magent program then chavez would be in the top schools in the city.
