California Standards Test (CST)

In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

    I was the in the First Graduation class of 2008 and also one of the first two grades to go here. This school is amazing and the teachers are very student oriented. I don't know what it is about this school but the teachers are definitely doing things more for the kids than worrying about getting paid. This school has had the largest graduating class since 2008 in SUSD. This is also the only SUSD school that offers 4x4 scheduling so you get 80 credits done instead of 60 a year like at the other 3 high schools. By the time you are a Senior you only have 2 classes you need to graduate. The awesome thing about this 4x4 program is that since you only need those 2 classes to graduate if you passed all your classes is that you can start going to Delta College during your senior year and get ahead in college. You also have time to take a third year language and math to get rid of that college requirement.This school is famous for their Great Titan Band.If you want your child in a great music program this is it.They do competitions in Santa Cruz Stockton Merced Oakland's holiday parade and sometimes Disneyland.Great Alumni support even though there's only 4 graduating classes so far.

    I absolutley love this school. The student involement is amazing. The teachers are helpful and the 4 by 4 schedule is good.

    I can talk to the principal if I need to and I see him around the campus. I had a senior in 09 and seeing those students hug him shows he is involved. They have kept the performing arts which is awesome and kept my boys from dropping out since they could not do sports due to grades. Even though there was a gpa for the music program they tried to work with them and one actually got his grades up and received a scholarship to the local junior college in music. They are strict with dress code which is great and they require and give respect with the students. When we have had a problem it has been dealt with. They are short staffed like most schools and the music dept has lost all the money for buses for competition but they are trying to get businesses to help compensate.

    as a proud member of the cchs class of 09 i would like to say that cesar chavez high school is an amazing place to attend. the security is high and the staff actually cares. cchs's schedual helps students learn more and focus on school work.

    Im a junior at cchs and i love that school im the marching band and we are pretttyyyyy goood were in the AA division and were always in the top 3. The teachers are great and the security monitors are hecka tight. I just love the school overall

    Chavez is an excellent school for my children to attend. They have great extra curricular activities that my children are in. The way the schudel is set up it gives my children the attention from the teachers that they need. I am very happy with the way Cesar Chavez runs there school.

    CCHS is a good school all in all. My son just graduated from there. They put a lot of time and did a wonderful job on the graduation. With the schools budget cuts going on through out the state you would never know it at the first four year graduation commencement ceremony. The school and district did a super job celebrating the achevments of the students. The only thing I would say I dislike is that the school seems to have understaff problems but thats going on in ever school right now. CCHS!!! good gob!!

    I am a JR at CCHS and I must say the school definitely improved from my freshmen year. I'm not going to lie though the school campus security can be a bit rude and the policies at CCHS can be a bit much. I felt like a cow on the first day of my JR year we wear all being rounded up with a bull horn and shoved through the front entrance to school it was very frustrating but they are a bit more lax now which is good. If there is a student who is an aspiring musician or wants to have a great time and play music at the same time the Cesar Chavez Titan Marching Band is the place to be. The Titan Jazz band is a very competitive band so be ready to play your heart out and dedicate your life to music.

    I am a sophmore at cesar chavez high school. Its alright and i mean its not like we do a lot of fun thigs. We just had a play though that went very good yall should have went. The football team did good this year. We almost went to the playoffs. I think that the basketball team is going to do good this year and we are going to thr playoffs. We had a good track team last year so hopefully we will this year.This school has come a long way and we will continue to do better an grow even more it least while i'm here

    I'm a senior right now. I think that CCHS is a indeed a great environment for kids like us to learn and develop. The teachers are awesome; they have a very good sense of humor which has made learning both fun and enjoyable for me. Also the counseling department those counselors are pretty good too. They would always be available for you whenever you need them. Our school is the best; the staff here would always try to help students to achieve only the best during their years of learning and developing.

    I love Cesar Chavez. It's a great School.

    I am a sophmore at CCHS and I think our school is pretty alright. I do think that the school is very unorganized and they need to work on that and I dont think the principal is very involved with the school either. But I think that we're off to a good start. Our marching band is doing well and we have a lot of after school clubs and extra curricular activites that keep us in check. Uh that's pretty much it.

  • (7 years ago)

    Well I think that Cesar Chavez did get off to a new start for the year 06-07 and their new technique of a blocked schedule is creative but students are still over worked with homework and classwork. Students are being targeted for useless reasons and not always guarnteed the help that is needed. I think that they are sort of slacking on their teaching but there can be room to improve. Thank you.

    I am a sophomore class of 09' and I think CCHS is a good school I mean we did not start off on the right foot but we are doing much better than any other school! our marching band is doing awesome under mr Coleman and Mrs. florek they have done better than any other activity on campus however volleyball is doing pretty well I do not think it's a school that is bad I think its how us the students interpret fun if we are always doing extracurricular activities then we have no time to be bored We need to see all the outcomes from coming a new brand school but having so many changes I think this is one of the nicest school out there!

    Hello Readers I am a junior at Cesar Chavez High School and this is my honest opinion! Cesar Chavez is very unorganized and they do not have a great staff. There is one teacher that I absolutely think is wonderful his name is Mark Perovich. As for the principal she does not interact with the students very well. If you have the choice send your child to a different school. -Student at Cesar Chavez

    I am a student at Chavez High School. Even though we were going through changing teachers. I do believe the teachers are excellent. I had change of two teachers it was a little difficult. But it paied off at the end. I am an incoming junior who has attended three high schools including chavez and for a new school it wasn't that bad. I also believe that we have encouraging teachers and administration! Over all Chavez High is excellent for it beign new. The down side though is the new changes planned for the upcoming year. As a student I think that that will be the challenge of the upcoming school year. One last thing I think we have great extracurricular activities! We are know for our programs under Mr. Coleman. he is an excellent teacher. We also have excellent sports and coaches who are encouraging and enthusiastic.
