Sinclear Grizzlies ROCK!! The teachers are awesome! Ofcourse there's always a couple of teachers whom we would like to avoid- but over all, the teachers are very caring and fun. The rest of the staff (cafeteria, yard duties and office) is also great. The principal and her assistant are very involved in school activities. Have you ever seen your childs principal dance and even try to do the hula hoop!? I have! Sinclear has also met every academic goal and if it weren't enough, they've received the DISTINGUISH SCHOOL AWARD!!! Yes, AMAZING !!

Sinclear is a very positive school. My son has been there for two years and enjoys going every day. I'm involved in helping as much as I can, and see other parents doing the same. Teachers and staff keep up the good work.

Sinclear Elementary is a gift to our neighborhood. It promotes positivity and pride to all around. The teachers are amazing! The programs are wonderful. My family is benefiting from this wonderful addition to the Ceres Unified School District.

Sinclear is a success! The students' school spirit seems to be pretty positive. Staff & office personal are very friendly & inviting. Teachers are informative and helpful and the principal is the best. I think the school is a great asset to our fairly new community. The school district is only allowing a low number of students in each school since there are now more new schools. This is a plus! Unfortunately, this newer neighborhood is booming with new houses and families moving in and those new families are finding out that there is no room for there children at this school.

This brand new school is just 2 blocks from my home. Unfortunately, many of the children on our block were unable to attend this new school because it is not big enough for all the kids in our neighborhood, even if they live just 2 blocks away.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
