We enrolled our children in this school in August of 2011 and are very pleased with the curriculum offered to them. My children absolutely love going to a school where teachers continuously encourage them to give it their best. They are full of pride and self worth. Any issues/concerns are promptly addressed by Mrs.Dodd the principle and heres something new: she actually listens and handles her job with such poise and grace. Never rude or on a power trip, always at our disposition. The health assistant Ms.Gilroy is also very thorough when it comes to informing the parents of any nurse's visits from the kids.We get immediate phone calls with details of why the visit occured and what the resolution was. We could not say enough about the staff at Sierra Vista! GO VIKINGS!
The staff at Sierra Vista are a caring , hardworking Staff. They work at every level to reach a students personal best . The networking is amazing and they truly care about every student .... They do not get enough credit!
I don't agree withe the parent below, my child joins all the sports she can and she as well as ever other student on the team try there best as well as the coaches and besides when a coach is tough on the kids then you get those parents who cry that the coach is mean or unfair and besides the girls volleyball just placed 3rd on Fridays tournament! plus they need more parent support! I think there doing great!
I don't know what it is with this school but I attended as a child k-6 and my daughter has been their since 4th grade, this school just can't ever win in sports. I feel win a school can excel in sports it demonstrates the drive and passion in children, when a schools not winning I feel it reflects the attitude of the school overall. I think this school is lacking!
It's OK. My main complaint is not the school but the parents of the children who attend there. I have never had a bad one on one experience, but during school programs when the principal is trying to speak most of the parents and their children just talk right over her. Laughing, walking around and carrying on. She tries to get everyone quiet, but as soon as she begins again they talk right over her. I was completely surprised at the lack of respect. Not everyone does this, but I'd say the vast majority of the parents are. How can you teach your kids to be respectful of others, adult authority figures especially, when you yourself are not. I have been very disappointed in the parents behavior regarding this. Like I said though I have never been treated rudly myself. I've found everyone to be very friendly.
We move from Salt Lake City alittle more then a year ago. My daughter has been in Sierra Vista since moving here. She is in Special Ed half day and general ed the other half. She also see the speech therapist. This school is above phenomenal! The teachers and the office is always in the know. There is great internal communication as well as communication with parents. Even Campus Club is wonderful! Mrs. Tess and Mrs. Jessica are wonderful people!! I am so glad my daughter goes her, and I am glad that there is such a sense of 'in the know' with everyone. I applaud you all for such a wonderful job done.
I have a 10 year old and a 7 year old that attend Sierra Vista and I would never want them to attend another school! Sierra has the best staff, the office is always on top of my children and making sure I am involved at all times. The teachers are also on track with myself and the well being for my children, educational and socially
The teachers at this school are very dedicated to the children. They go above and beyond the call of duty.
I have a son in first grade, also one in headstart at Sierra Vista. The school has gone out of their way to help me and my family. For my three year old it has made a life time of diffrence between the amazing afternoon teacher, to the wonderful speech teacher. In January my son could only say about ten words, and that is saying alot. Now he sings songs, and tells me actual phrases now. My oldest on the otherhand does great academically but he spends all his lunches in lunch detention, he is not a bad kid just likes to talk alot. We lived in the bay before this, all I can say is the parents that have bad things to say you might wanna look into the reasoning a little more because if you think this is bad remember it could be alot worse.
At the beginning I had good response, lately with any concerns regarding extra activities I have been told 'I could opt to take my child out' I don't think parent concerns regarding health should be delt with by making them quit. Principal talks of kids having school spirit, how about the school having kid spirit, protect our kids. These actions disillusions me from the whole district, even the district office has shown disconcern with my concerns in these matters.
My kids 3 have been going to Sierra Vista since pre-school, one is at Clark in 8th grade, if it wasnt for the resource teacher and special ed. he would be in real trouble now instead of excelling. My other two are still there and doing well. I do wish there was more focus on Science for the kids and engineering. Its all Math, reading, and lanquage, which is good, but there are other subjects worth teaching also.
My children have been going to Sierra Vista for the last 7 years. I love that school and the school staff knows my children, like they were their own kids. I will tell everyone I know that this school is number one in my book.
