Cesar Chavez Junior High School opened its doors to seventh-grade students in August 2011.
As the third junior high school built in the district in over 20 years, this campus offers state-of the-art facilities and classrooms to students and staff.
Chavez Junior High began housing both, seventh and eighth grade students in the 2012-2013 school year.
The campus also includes a multi-purpose room, dance studio and gymnasium. The gymnasium was completed in February 2012. Plans include the sports teams in football, basketball, and soccer. Additionally, the gymnasium is used for physical education activities that include volleyball and badminton.
Unique for a junior high, this gymnasium is outfitted with bleachers on both sides, with a capacity to hold up to 1,900 spectators.
The construction of this new junior high ultimately resulted in a decrease in the number of students attending Mae Hensley and Blaker-Kinser Junior Highs. The goal is to have fewer than 900 students at each of the three junior high school campuses.
Cesar Chavez Junior High School is a tobacco free school.
