MISSION STATEMENT

"All students who graduate from our Dual Language Immersion Early College Campus will be prepared to succeed in college and civic life as leaders in the quest for social justice and anti-racism. We develop intellectually curious, self-motivated scholars who are articulate communicators in two languages, critical thinkers and consumers, cultural ambassadors, and contributing community members. We focus on socio-emotional learning as a key part of our program for students and staff. We demonstrate perseverance, ethics and character in the pursuit of excellence. Restorative practices are the foundation of our school climate, as we enhance relationships and build community. As lifelong learners in the pursuit of excellence and innovation, we foster a growth mindset through which  teachers, administrators, students, parents, and community members all collaborate to achieve goals and overcome obstacles. We utilize technology responsibly to personalize learning and support the learning process across distance. We trust one another to continually improve our practices."

UPCOMING EVENTS / MASTER CALENDAR

Perla Guzman Martinez woke up on the second day of the year in a cold sweat. The 15-year-old’s body ached and she could not stop shaking.

The teenager said does not know how she and the rest of her family became infected with the coronavirus. The family is careful to wear face masks outside their apartment in Fort Totten, which they only leave for necessities.

After two weeks of missing class, Guzman Martinez’ coronavirus symptoms began to ease. But as she prepared to log back on for virtual learning, the sophomore at Columbia Heights Education Campus in the District faced another challenge: finals.

“At that point, school wasn’t even important, if I’m being completely honest,” she said.

Her mother and stepfather, who are not fluent in English, suffered more severe symptoms of the virus than the teenager did. The language barrier meant Guzman Martinez and her older sister, a college student, became responsible for tracking down information about COVID-19 testing sites and local organizations that were offering food and other assistance. The 15-year-old helped care for her parents as they recovered, brewing tea and cooking eggs and bacon and quesadillas.

“What people don’t talk about is the emotional toll that having COVID takes on you,” she said. “It’s really hard to focus because there are so many other worries.”

That toll has been unevenly felt among the D.C. region’s public schoolchildren.


MISSION AWARD RECIPIENTS - TEACHER OF THE MONTH


SOCIAL MEDIA HUB
At CHEC, there is power in student voice, and it isn't a voice that teachers can give. We don't give voices here. We make space for students interested in learning how to fight for their lives, our lives, and their nation. From discussion about the disproportionate impact of Covid-19 in communities of color, to immigration reform, housing descrimination, mass incarceration, police brutality our students are ready, willing and able to engage in courageous conversations.
