    5 star--Great school I was so thankful for my son to have gone there. I enjoyed all the teahers and other staff. I will miss this school I do look foward to the other school.

    Ceres Elementary is undoubtedly one of the most incredible schools that I have had the honor of being involved with and I would recommend it as the school of the century. The parent involvement is fantastic and the Teachers are #1. If you want to really see it for what it is then visit www.cerespto.co.nr
