School Awards

  • In August 2003, Cesar E. Chavez High School (CCHS) opened its doors to the students of Delano. This historic occasion marked the beginning of a new educational era in the city of Delano. Our students and school community exude "Titan Pride", and we enjoy sharing our accomplishments with parents and community members.

    Our motto is that we are "a school where learning and academic achievement is fostered, recognized, and celebrated." Teachers, parents, students, and staff work hard to create a unique Titan culture and our efforts have been reflected through the accolades we've received throughout the years.
