AVID Certification
After two years of initial AVID implementation, this year we became an AVID certified school. There are various things we've put in place to support our student in becoming Achievers via Individual Determination. In grades third through fifth, students use daily agendas, learn how to take two and three column note, use binders to maintain organization in the different curricular areas as well as to have the necessary tools for academic success. They also use various higher level thinking tools and  We also have schoolwide assemblies so that all students in grades, K-5, can learn about different universities and colleges. Each classroom has a college board as well. All students are also taught ways to improve their mindset, which is critical for lifelong growth. 

Norwalk-La Mirada USD 2020 Learning Initiative


Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District is leading our community into the future by developing students who are open and curious, and skilled in critical thinking, working in teams, and using new and current technologies.


As a result of the district's initiative, all our second and fourth classes received one to one technology tools. Second grade classrooms received chromebooks and IPads for group instruction. The fourth grade classrooms received an IPad for each student to use individually. Teachers also received additional technology tools and training for effective use of the technology for student learning. Next year, students and teachers in grades third and fifth will be receiving the same technology. 


All Sanchez students have access to three computers in their classrooms and two computer labs that have enough computers for all students to use.
