Alta Sierra is an okay school. Some of my teachers were the best teachers I have ever had, while others were TERRIBLE. My AB (History and Language Arts) teacher is really mean. One day we had 3 essays due the next day and she gave us MORE homework! :( The school is very big so you really never know what is going on. Office ladies are nice while some are mean. Lunch consists of the same boring food everyday. (Their rice tastes disgusting!) And their dress code is macho strict. The students are very nice to almost everyone.Alta has cluster offices like grizzly, polar, and kodiak (Our animal is the Bruins(bears)) and they all are for different things. Like I said before: the school is really big and CONFUSING! Otherwise, it's a pretty good school. :)

My son has attended Alta for the last 2 years and has really enjoyed his experience. He loves it so much that he hasn't missed a day of school. He is involved with clubs during school, and athletics after school, as well as extra travel teams. He has learned to time manage and organize to get all his school work done while managing his sports schedule. He has been involved with the lap top program both years and he's better on the computer than I am now. The program will really help him,in the future, during High School, College and later on in his career. The athletic programs are great with wonderful coaches. Most school communication is on line on their website. Communication with teachers is sometime slow, but I think a lot of it is because they really encourage the students to talk to the teachers and handle the issues rather then have the parents get in the middle. My sons test scores have continued to rise and the teachers continue to challenge him in a fun way.

I have taught at Alta Sierra for seven years and find it to be a warm, caring school. Successful academics, great technology, award winning music programs, and stellar sports teams are hallmarks of this school. Many teachers are available during lunch and afer school to provide extra help for students in need, in addition to numerous after school help programs. High standards coupled with extra support are the building blocks of the school's success. Parent support is fantanstic! The Alta Sierra commnunity continues to be the backbone of the many successes of this school.

My son just graduated from the school. Academically, a great school. Many programs to choose from although since the school is so big, it is hard to get into some of the classes. Parent involvement could be much better. Socially, the school has much to be desired. Emails are many times not returned or acknowledged. Teachers are not proactive in posting homework early for the kids that have after school activities so they can get ahead when time allows, nor does it appear that the administration wants to do anything about that. My son got a good education, but he won't remember it latter in life as a fun time.

The Acedemics are great. Love the laptop program and thrilled to hear a new vendor is being used! Old one was bad. Music, Sports and History Day programs are very good. Must admit the 8th grade A/B teachers need some help. My student didn't even get half way into the text book. Makes me wonder what was missed.
