My experience at Ceres Highscool has been exceptionally well from the resources , to the friendliness, and attention given to the students to pushed for a further education has out done themselves in my eyes . They have many different programs to help students in the direction they want to go from engineering , art , music , and even hands on learning the school makes sure they have good qualified staff to part take in teaching these to students. This school has been around for many years and will last for many more because of school spirit and the amazing staff that keeps it running daily!

I think the Ceres unified school district is a very organized and well set up. It has been around the community for many years and they have formed a successful education system where children can comfortably be in an environment to want to learn. They are frequently moving the education system and involving the people together little by little. They continue to show the want for improvement and are always trying to bring the community together. They hold many conferences at the community headquarters where people can go and express their voice and ideas. They all work together to make the system the best place it can be for everyone, from the students to the parents.
I've been attending schools in the Ceres Unified School District for my whole academic career, so far. The administrators and campus culture is what keeps me motivated to continue my education successfully. The students, for the most part, are very positive towards one and other. The activities and events that the district allows us to have also keep myself and my fellow peers happy the be attending schools in the Ceres Unified School District. The teacher and custodians deeply care about the well being of each and every students and their actions speak for it. Not to mention the great diversity in resources and culture on every campus I've experienced. I would highly recommend schools within this district to parents with new students.
