I will be pulling my child out of this school. Administration coddles certain students and allows those certain students to bully the rest without consequences. Curriculum in English Literature centers on Puerto Rican teens with STDs or transgender issues, yet Huckleberry Finn is banned. Teens can wear IsIs flag tee-shirts, yet the Confederate Battle Flag t-shirt has gotten one student expelled. Sickening, these double standards.

I am currently a freshman at canyon high, and Sierra vista is the corresponding JHS. In my opinion, there are some pretty good teachers, but too many bad ones that failed to adequately prepare us for high school and ultimately the rest of our lives. For the average student, an average school like Sierra vista would be fine. However, for enriched students like myself, challenges are far and few between except in the enriched math classes with great teachers like Mrs Skoczylas and Mrs Sirchia. Teachers like them and Mr. Copenhaver are just about the only bright spot, except the nationally recognized PE program chaired by mr velarde. The administration also preaches that their goal is to everyone an opportunity to have a quality education. Firstly, it is hard for people to learn when ignorant and disrespectful thugs are in each and every class. Secondly, this motto shows how the enriched students are neglected and not challenged, but the average joe is catered to.

This school is great. The way the teachers and principal work is stupendous. They have lots of activities and the PE program is awesome. There are lots of parents around that volunteer and there is always a supervisor or teacher nearby.

Sierra Vista Jr. High School was a very positive experience for Both my kids. From the Principal, Teachers, to the supporting staff communication was the Best. I can't say enough about how the care for the students shows through right when you walk on campus. The teachers were willing to help both my kids at brunch,lunch or after school when they were asked.I was also impressed with the creative ways they got our kids to get physical (P.E) 'Dance Dance Revolution' and 'Survivor Day' are a couple of examples. The 4 stars are because there is always room for improvement, and I can't wait to see what they'll come up with next. Keep up the good work Sierra Vista in educating and developing good character in our future leaders!

I feel that Sierra Vista is an OK school. I was a little disappointed by the lack of follow through by the teachers & the lack of sports teams for the students. I guess it's a lot better than La Mesa which is our only alternative for public Junior High around here.

Sierra Vista is just keeping these kids alive and learning!
