CEC’s Guiding Principles


CEC Mission

Cesar E. Chavez Middle School instills a desire for lifelong learning while preparing students to become productive citizens through the mastery of 21st-century skills.


CEC Vision

The vision of Cesar E. Chavez Middle School is to create an inclusive, safe, and supportive learning environment where our students are Respectful, Own their actions, are Appropriative and attentive, and who are Responsible citizens (R.O.A.R.) In order for our students to be successful across content areas, they will become critical thinkers who can communicate, engage, and collaborate with the facilitation of rigorous curriculum while maximizing the effective use of technology.



We believe everyone deserves a safe, supportive, and orderly learning environment.  We encourage appropriate behaviors by teaching, guiding, directing, and providing opportunities for new learning to occur. We create opportunities for students to practice and succeed in making responsible and effective choices in order to reach their academic potential and contribute to their school and local community.

When students make positive behavior choices, students will be successful. If students do not make positive behavior choices, students will receive interventions to help them learn how to make better choices. It is essential for the school and home ally assuring that all students meet the high expectations for academic achievement and citizenship. Parent and community support are vital in this process.
