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.

ABC Unified School District campuses will soon be using a new computerized Visitor Management System, adding another layer of security to local schools. Visitors will now have to present any government-issued picture ID to enter school grounds.
