CEO Message

The King-Chavez Neighborhood of Schools are committed to charter school reform of urban education for students and parents in the Historic Barrio District and Downtown San Diego. Our mission statement says it all: “ We seek excellence in academics, arts and athletics from a foundation of love.” We are dedicated to closing the achievement gap between traditionally under-served children and their more affluent counterparts.


King-Chavez Neighborhood of Schools provide three levels of support to students: First of all, a culturally sensitive environment where parents feel respected and students are provided security and love. Secondly, our schools are data driven environments in which student have constant feedback about their learning along their road to academic success. Thirdly, our students are given arts and athletics curriculum integration, blended learning opportunities with technology tools, thematic cross-curricular instruction, small group instruction opportunities, project-based learning time, and community internships at the high school level.

We invite you to visit our schools and witness our student success.
