About Us

Welcome to King-Chavez Neighborhood of Schools! At KCNS, our school community is our family. Empowering the community since 2000, King-Chavez proudly serves TK to 12th grade students across five schools within the city of San Diego. Our dual language approach to academics, arts, and athletics puts student support and high expectations at the forefront of all we do. Our teachers and support staff personally invest in every student at every school and we maintain small class sizes to ensure that no student is overlooked. Our students learn to be strong leaders equipped with 21st century skills and, in the spirit of our namesake, ready to become movers in their community!

Our unique approach to learning includes:
- Dual language immersion and pathways to achieve the CA State Seal of Biliteracy
- Embedded mental health supports and daily dynamic mindfulness practice
- Customized partnerships through our Community School model that support the whole child
- Free Expanded Learning Opportunities (ELO), including competitive athletic programs, after-school clubs, before and after school programs, and academic/enrichment programs during school breaks
- Free field trips throughout the year
- Financial support and counseling for King-Chavez Alumni
We invite you to join us in our mission as we seek excellence in academics, arts, and athletics from the foundation of love!
