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.

My experience at Ceres Unified was a decent one. I had to transfer elementary schools, and the district allowed me to do it quite easily. With High School being my more prominent experience I will reflect more on that. I found that most of the teachers at the schools were very approachable, except for a minor few. Most of my teachers were excited to teach and helped out any way they could. It made learning enjoyable. With that being said the district did complicate things with there rules. The food was abysmal since our district chose to enforce healthy foods. It was a pain to make money for extracurriculars, but I brought food from home so it was a minor inconvenience. Overall I am happy I was educated in the Ceres Unified School District. It brought me a lot of opportunities and allowed me to excel.
Ceres Unified brings great positivity to our environment. Our district is unique and does a great job at briging our schools together. They like to hold special events at parks, and welcome everyone who would like to join. These events bring together rivalry schools, and they help us learn companionship. Some of these events may be race courses, where students represent their school, but in the end, everyone learns that no matter what school you go to, we all represent our beloved city of Ceres.
