Chavez High School Reviews

The most I enjoyed about my school was the amazing teachers that I meet. Yes, there was teachers that were a bit difficult, but the majority of them you could tell that teaching made them happy. The teachers I had welcomed their students like if they had meet them for years. I feel if I had a problem I could go with any of my teachers and they will listen to me and give me advice. In each year I always had a teacher that I loved. Two teachers that I could go to if I just wanted someone to hear me was Mr. Setien and Coach Sarabia. Both of them made my years incredible. A teacher that I could tell enjoyed teaching was Mr. Johnson, he was like no other teacher. He actually explained the subject good and showed us examples to understand better. I will forever remember them and most likely go visit them because they made my high school experience good.

Chavez was the best 4 years of my life. I developed a wonderful support group of friends and teachers who all cared about my academic progress and well-being. The school can be kind of segregated in an academic sense where those in the more advanced programs are paid more attention to, however there are programs, counselors and all forms of help set in place for any student looking to move up the ladder of success. Here, you just need to open up and know when to ask for help. If I had to honestly list one complaint, it would be that the attendance office is probably the most unwelcoming spot on the campus.
Chavez high school has dedicated and motivated teachers, counselors, and principal. Most teachers that I have come across have taught the material very detailed and overall great! They also reach out to the students and help them with college readiness as well. Anything from the courses they should take to recommendation letter and scholarship recommendations! The students are respectful of the teachers at most times. The principal cares for each student, which is a factor in making a school great! Lastly the Lobo Den at Chavez perpares students for success after high school, they help students with the application porcess, waivers, and FAFSA applications as well. They take all the stress off of preparing for college! Very grateful for them. Overall If success is what you're looking for, then Chavez High School is the perfect place to be!
