The mission of the Los Cerritos School Community is to honor diversity while developing personal integrity and respect for others. We are committed to the intellectual, psychological, social and physical development of each child in a student-centered, academically-enriched environment. We believe in providing all students with a positive, supportive, student-centered learning environment. Students will be empowered to express themselves appropriately. We also believe in holding high expectations of our students to achieve to their highest potential, while still acknowledging the individual differences of each student. All students should exhibit responsibility by making positive choices which allow students to become successful citizens in domestic and global societies. Los Cerritos will provide an interesting, safe, joyful and positive experience that will encourage the desire for life-long learning.
