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 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.
