    This is a great school to send your child if you would like him/her to learn english and spanish. I had my son in a Houston school and they taught him spanish first. I didn't like that I would rather he be taught english first if he is bilingual. The Houston school has different ways but I think Cesar Chavez has better way. I only thing that I would like to see is a bigger gym so kids can play indoors because it is hot and dry in this area.
