I am a students at Sierra is it very good school now it has changed a lot to be honest I didn't feel safe last school year with bullying but now the teachers, counselors, principles, and monitors stepped up there game there used to be lots of fights, now its really rare if there is teachers actually care for us now. It is a very good school I really recommend it to anyone.
I agree with the comment on the bullying.my grandson has been bullied to the point he does not want to go to school.my daughter went and tried to talk to the counselor and he said he would call her for an appointment,he never did.i personally went to the school and told the counselor that my son got knocked down,kicked and choked by a student on his way to school.i guess they will lose funding for my grandson because he will be home schooled next year.
Sierra Middle School has a well written school improvement plan in place with a focus on student achievement and parent involvement. The teachers are focused and teach a standards driven curriculum supported by state standards. Active participation by students can be seen in the classrooms and a positive, motivated, successful feeling can be found at this site.
The academic programs offered are average, but the teacher involvement and genuine interest is wonderful. They have an exceptional music program with a great deal of other extracurricular activities and offer unique opportunities for the children to travel. The level of parent involvement is unfortunately very limited, but the teachers help to pick up the slack.
This is a great school! the most importants tests of the country are taken here!this test are called sims, aims, and stanford 9. This scool has many and the best teachers ever. They are really stict due to they want your child to learn and understand the basics. All of my childrens attemped that school because there was never any fight and their grades were fantastic!
