School Tradition: Do The Right Thing
CVH focuses on the five A’s of Spartan Excellence: Attitude, Athletics, Academics, Artistry and Attendance, and 30 percent of the student population is enrolled in the School for Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA- click HERE to log onto the SCPA Official website).

Known by the community-at-large as a legitimate Home of Champions (HOC), the community believes that students leave CVHS prepared to be successful citizens and that we can accomplish what other schools cannot – Chula Vista High School does it right.

Rich traditions based on clearly articulated core values of fairness, equality, personal responsibility and high expectations for all students which help provide equal access to success. Upon graduation, many people come back to teach where they were taught. We currently have over 30 employees that were graduates of CVHS.

Basic traditions consist of wearing Blue and White every Friday throughout the year, participating in the activities held on the Big Lawn during lunch, NEVER stepping on the Spartan Seal.
