Ceres Elementary School Home

Principal Julie Gonzalez and several Ceres students.


The Mission of Ceres Elementary School is to provide a positive, interactive, safe and caring environment for every child. With the support of our staff and supportive parents your child will have an opportunity to become proficient on State Standards and achieve high levels of academic proficiency. We are committed to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of each individual student. Our students will be expected to reach their greatest potential as we provide them with the tools and strategies to become good citizens and lifelong learners.

Opening the Door

At the East Whittier City School District, we are preparing our students to be 21st Century citizens by teaching them five essential skills: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, Critical thinking and Community. These skills will open the door to our students' future education, careers and other important areas of their lives.
