On behalf of our school community, I welcome you and thank you for your interest in Columbia Heights Educational Campus (CHEC). It is truly an honor to serve the students in our community. It is also a privilege to lead a campus consisting of remarkable staff, invested parents, a dedicated nonprofit Board and very caring community and business members, all of whom are committed to the well-being of our students.
CHEC is an integral part of the District’s vibrant public schools and we take great pride in being recognized externally as one of the top schools that has no exclusionary entrance requirements. As a community, we are dedicated to providing safe, secure and nurturing environments that facilitate and enhance student achievement and success. We are confident that we have a very special and educationally enriching experience to offer the children in our community.
It is our belief that we must vigorously seek opportunities to engage students in the most relevant learning opportunities possible in order to prepare them for the demands of the future. Our children deserve no less than the best and our teachers, staff, and administrators are committed to providing the highest quality education so our students become lifelong learners and responsible citizens.
I invite parents and community members to become actively involved in a student’s school experience. Home, community, and school partnerships, founded on mutual respect and regular communication, provide an unbeatable combination for quality education and student success.
I invite you to learn more about us by browsing the site, visiting our campus or simply contacting our main office.
