Opened in 1999, Cesar Chavez is a large comprehensive high school in Laveen. Our highly educated and committed staff serves a diverse population of students with a wide variety of programs. We offer solid academics, with one of the largest and most successful Advanced Placement programs in the district, allowing students to earn college credit in thirteen different courses in five content areas. We also provide a variety of innovative approaches to success on the AIMS test, as well as in college and the work force. We have established an excellent tutoring program and are supporting the success of our 9th graders with our new Freshman House program. AVID is an important component of student success and is implemented school wide. Our students participate in a wide range of sports, clubs, and electives, including excellent programs in the fine arts, the performing arts, and JROTC. A student who is educated at Cesar Chavez gains a solid foundation in reading, writing, and math, as well as a thorough grounding in the technology necessary to succeed in the 21st century. Our robotics team recently travelled to the White House to meet President Obama; this is just one example of the rich and varied opportunities available on to students on our campus.
