Welcome parents, student, and staff to Cesar E. Chavez High School and its web page. Our students and school community are proud of a Decade of Excellence and enjoy sharing our school’s accomplishments with parents and community members. In August 2003, CCHS was Titan Born, opening its doors to the students of Delano and therefore marking the beginning of a new educational era. After a little over 10 years we can honestly say that our school community is Titan Made. Not only do our students continue to distinguish themselves in the classroom everyday as they prepare for College and/or a Career, our Titans make us proud on stage, on the field of play, and in the community at large; they are Fearless, Driven, TITAN!
Please explore the different web links, stay informed of the different programs offered, keep in touch with current events, and support our student body by joining us in the various sporting and extra-curricular activities and events.
The Motto: Our school motto is that “CCHS is a Professional Learning Community (PLC), a school where learning and academic achievement is fostered, recognized, and celebrated.” Teachers, parents, students, and staff have worked hard to create a uniquely Titan Culture, align our curriculum, instruction, and assessments to the California Content Standards and the Common Core State Standards. CCHS students continue to benefit from these efforts as evidenced in a decade of accomplishments which reflects the dedication, talent and abilities of our students and staff. During the fall of 2011, CCHS became the top performing high school in Kern and Tulare counties with an API score of 847, verifying that our people, as well as our programs, are making an impact on the academic progress of our students.
The Awards: In the spring of 2011, CCHS was nominated and then honored with the California Distinguished School Award. In 2012, CCHS was named again as a Title I Academic Achievement Award winner, and a National Title I Distinguished School. In 2009 and then 2011, CCHS was named by U.S. News and World Report as one of America’s Top High Schools (Bronze Medal). In 2012 and 2014 CCHS achieved Silver Medal status as one of America’s Top High Schools according to U.S. News and World Report. Although we are proud of recent accolades and accomplishments, the challenge remains to continue innovating, collaborating, analyzing data, and having high expectations with support mechanisms to assist all CCHS students. We are confident that CCHS will continue to be a great school with the support of our parents and our community.
