Chaboya Middle School
Chaboya is a four-time recipient of the prestigious California Distinguished School Designation. Chaboya Middle school represents a unique time in the lives of young adolescents. Sixth, seventh and eighth graders experience numerous physical, intellectual, social and psychological changes as they move from childhood to adulthood. It is the goal of Chaboya Middle School to provide a rigorous and balanced standards-based curriculum through a structured environment, which meets the needs of our students in transition and reflects and celebrates the diversity of our community. Within a safe and caring environment all students are expected and encouraged to work to their greatest potential in achieving academic success, becoming physically fit, acquiring appropriate social skills, developing self-reliance, and gaining self-confidence in order to be better prepared for high school and to demonstrate competency on the California High School Exit Exam. The responsibility for the development of educated, well adjusted, and responsible young adults is shared by all stakeholders: administrators, teachers, parents and students. Administrators provide an effective learning environment by establishing and enforcing procedures, rules, and standards. Teachers, allowing for individual needs, promote learning by implementing appropriately planned lessons while utilizing assessments as benchmarks to ascertain student progress in meeting the state standards and developing differentiated instructional strategies to close the achievement gap. Parents are encouraged to foster student academic and social success by providing an appropriate study environment, inspiration and support. Finally, students will achieve academically, physically, and socially by actively participating in the school program.
Chaboya's school vision was collaboratively developed by the School Site Council representing all the stakeholders: administrators, teachers, parents and students.
