Sierra Vista is an average school , what concerns me is that The school is very dirty, The Bathrooms are disgusting. students do not throw away they're trash and leave it lying around... Other wise The Principal is Fair . I once had a problem and she took care of it right away... The teachers I've had were okay, some I didn't understand, And did not make the effort to help me.I had to transfer out of class and start over with an other teacher. There are alot of fun clubs, field trips to fun places, and my favorite is dressing up for Halloween!
My experience at Sierra Vista was AMAZING!!! At first I was scared to go to middle school because I thought kids would pick on you but not at Sierra vista everyone is friendly and care about each other.!!! I love the teachers they help you a lot and they have many clubs to participate in. The school is so fun I love it sadly I'm not going there next year but if I could I would :) If you're looking for a middle school in Covina consider Sierra vista .
I have been a teacher at Sierra Vista for over 15 years. When creating an opinion I ask myself would I want my child to go to this school. The answer is definitely yes, in fact many teachers have had their children at the school. The strengths are the teachers and the parents and community the students come from. The teacher, for the most part, care, are creative and continue to evolve. Parents care and generally kids come to the classroom with manners and respect.
I think this school i the best I've been to, and I''m constaly movin Ive been t 6 middle schools before and i refuse to leave Sierra Vista. Every since ive been going there my grades are way better and I'm a better student. The staff teachers and principal help me extremely
i'v been attending this school for 3 years and i admit there are some very good teachers but the teacher dont help you the way they should you are left trying to do things yourself the principle is the worse he dosent help with problems and the school dosent maintain order like they should
this school is great.classes arent that over crowded, theirs alot of empty seats in half my classes. and the sports programs are great, we have an intermural soccer team to. The sudents might be a bit crazy, but its middle school, and kids are kids, thats how they learn
this school is somewhat good. its good in ways but bad in others. one way its good is that there are plenty of after school activities to do but then a bad thing is that they don't keep it very clean (for example the bathroom,or at least the girls one) and a good thing is that the teachers are good...so all in all the school is good.
this school is so awesome yea some of the teachers are a little naggy but hey there just doing there job.the things i really like about this school is that the teachers (even though sometimes naggy) are awesome they give you a chance to explain and thats what makes it awesome!
I think the quality of the academic programs are actually great. Most teachers are awesome. They do have several sports programs, quite extensive for middle school, from cross-country, track, volleyball, basketball, football, etc. I do have to agree that many parents are apathetic here. They just want to complain so they can feel important. However, the parents that actually volunteer, like myself, are supportive of the school.
This is an ok suburban school. My kid started in 7th grade 2005. We moved to Covina fm Los Angeles were most public schools are not that good however we attended the finest independent private school in LA which gave us the best start ever. I must say that 7th grade for my kid was a repeat of 6th grade with a little extra but not close to the what was being taught in vocabulary and library science type, at her grade school. I was sole on the Spanish program since my kid had been studying Spanish since kindergarten and was able to continue. The Music program is great. I think more social programs would make that community tops, hence higher test scores. My kid was a 4.0honors 2007 grad but I'm still concerned about vocabulary skills for SAT. If not for massive off site reading on our part.... An AfricanAmericanFamily.
Lacking sports programs? Football, volleyball, basketball, track, intra-mural softball, what more sports do people want for a middle school?
My child has been going here for 3 years, and I have been nothing but disappointed with the academics programs. I see children slipping through the cracks and nobody seems to care. I would personally like to see more sports offered and go on for a longer period of time, maybe that would help get our kids in better shape.
School overcrowded. Some teacher apathy. Some very good teachers. Limited language classes. Extracurricular activities extremely lacking. Need uniforms.
Above decent academic programs, excellent staff. Quite dirty and very crowded. Little to no extra-curricular activites, sports programs are less than decent.
This school is very okay, the principal, however, is outstanding, and the staff can do their job well, and the administration and staff can enforce saftey and dicipline like they should.
Our scores speak well for us, but pesonal experience means far more. For example, when I talk to the other teachers about what is going on in their classrooms, I've found that we all feel it is important to 'be on the same page' so students learn the material the state asks us to cover. We all have Email so that parents can contact us easily at all hours of the day, and we respond quickly to phone calls. When parents call anyone on staff, we do our best to treat each person individually according to what he or she needs. I've watched kids who have come to here from 'rougher' areas; they tend to mellow out after being on our campus, which I take as a sign that we have great kids along with great staff and parents.
