    I am a very involved parent who demands excellence from my son and from his school. The teachers here are top quality. I don't understand why some rate it as less. I wonder if other parents actually know just how hard these teachers work and how amazingly intelligent hard-working and thoughtful each of them really is. My son is in the dual-language program and is excelling not only in his first language but also in Spanish which he had no previous experience with. His teachers have always been very aware of his abilities and those of other students and work toward creating a meaningful education for all. I am thoroughly impressed with this school for many reasons.

    The test scores for this year says it all! I am hoping the new superintendent will come in and make necessary changes (wishful thinking). Amy Biehl and Pinon (nearby schools) have consistently shown better test scores but it is so hard to get your students a lottery transfer. That is why so many parents lie about their address. All I can do is be proactive with my student/Child and hope that we get the lottery transfer soon.

    Each teacher and assistant I have dealt with is dedicated and caring. The school office staff are wonderful as well. My daughter is thriving and challenged by her teachers and looks forward to school every day. I am grateful to the teachers Principals and staff of Cesar Chavez Community School.

    My daughter is in kindergarden and receives homework nightly. I have some issues of when the kindergarden class has their lunch time. I am not so concerned about negative attitudes from her teacher. My daugther and I have never experienced anything negative from the school. We are looking forward to another year at Cesar Chavez.

    This is a very poor school in terms of achademic level. Usually my daughter doesn't bring homework and she brings something is not even at the first grade level in which she is is more like kindergarten level. I guess is not the school or teacher fault but the whole NM schools which are one place before last nationwide. Shameful.

    My daughter's first impressive years of education and her interest in learning are throroughly thwarted at the kindergarten. I asked the teacher if she enjoyed teaching she told me she hated it. After I audited her class for two days I know why she complains of stomach aches and headaches that don't really exist. The teacher and assistant teacher are languaged to the english only class of which there is one and they imprint unto the students negative languaging. 'You don't want to sit there you don't want to do this (or that)' and worst yet is telling a child to go home if they don't want to learn. If I could afford a private school I would. If I could arrange for afterschool care more conveniently I would arrange for another school to attempt to remove the first year negative experience.
