Mission Statement

The Cesar Chavez High School Mathematics Department is committed to the schools mission statement built around the 5 R's: Rigor, Relevance, Relationship, Research and Results.

In order for the Mathematics Department to provide an environment for this to occur, department members will need to remain current with knowledge of national educational trends, with teaching skills, with technology, and with content. Department members will need to be willing to explore ways in which to improve their teaching environment while not discarding proven effective practices of their own.

It is the belief of the Cesar Chavez High School Mathematics Department that students should encounter a challenging curriculum and coursework, which will prepare them to face the challenges of their future. Since students enter with varying abilities, backgrounds, and interests, a major emphasis is placed on the proper placement of each student according to the skills and aptitudes, which they demonstrate. A goal, should the student so desire, is to take a student as far as the student can go within a comprehensive high school mathematics curriculum.

Another belief of the Cesar Chavez High School Mathematics Department is the value of commitment, cooperation, dedication, honesty, perseverance, respect, responsibility, and a strong work ethic. To this end, department members will need to act as role models in teaching these values, as well as, hold these values as expectations of students.

The Cesar Chavez High School Mathematics Department also believes students must come to school prepared and willing to learn. Learning, and subsequent academic achievement, will flourish when students focus on their responsibility, which is inherent in the educational process.
