Cesar Chavez School students attend school four hours per week longer than other students in Chicago Public Schools (totaling 25 days of instruction). We provide computers for every student in 1st - 8th grade; and students use computers daily with a distinguished teaching staff. We have sports and arts programming after school every day and work closely with families to provide excellent instruction for each individual student. We have been a CPS Level 1 school for the past three years with the highest percentage of performance policy points in Network 8 (88.1%). We partner with the Hyatt Hotel Corporation, Rashied Davis Charities, The Kitchen Community, WITS, Common Thread, and the Latino Bar Association to help us meet the educational needs of every student. Last year, we were one of two CPS neighborhood district schools to win a national Next Generation Learning Challenge planning grant.
