Tiles for 50 years of excellence!

Cerritos Elementary is celebrating 50 years of excellence! Since we opened our doors in September 1969. To help commemorate this milestone we are constructing a mural made from over 800 individual ceramic tiles. Tiles will include the names of all current students and staff, all former teachers, district representatives, and our logo. In addition, we have some tiles available for alumni and former staff members. For more information and/or to purchase a tile, please go to read full story.

School Mission & Vision

VISION STATEMENT
Our vision for Cerritos Elementary School (CES) is that it exists to prepare students for a productive life in the twenty-first century. We believe citizens of the future must be life-long learners able to work and interact in a diverse society.  Our goals for students are to master grade level content standards, use critical thinking and problem solving strategies, develop communication skills, and demonstrate positive and democratic social interactions.  By providing a rigorous academic and caring environment, we strive to help students realize their full academic potential, develop positive self-concepts, and gain enthusiasm for learning.  We encourage all students to develop responsibility for their own behavior and a concern for others.  Our goals are aligned with the goals of the ABC Unified School District (ABCUSD).  We invite our community to help plan and participate in implementing programs to prepare students for a healthy and successful future.
