I would not recommend this school if your child is on the autism spectrum. My son has spent the last 3 years at Sierramont and has been continuously told to be an advocate for himself. Regardless of his autism or his IEP he's been thrown into a box. There is a large disconnect on what the staff is educated on when it comes to children suffering with special needs. My son is high-functioning and has been bullied, misunderstood, and hasn't had consistent advocates. I will not say that there aren't a small few that have been there for my child and I applaud there efforts, but the politics have outweighed the support my child has needed. I feel that it is my obligation to save other parents from experiencing the battle that I have the last three years. I am the only voice my child has and it has been unheard with the upper staff at Sierramont. To have your child be misunderstood for being different, is explicable, and only made worse when they come home physically hurt and told to be an advocate for themself when they clearly can't speak for there self. This has been my experience at Sierramont.

I had to teach myself Algebra in 7th grade and Geometry in 8th grade. My 7th grade math teacher gave mean nicknames to some students on the first day I became a part of her class. There was an 8th grade science teacher notorious for lack in discipline and not teaching the students well. Their English department is excellent though, not a single bad teacher. -Sierramont Alumni

Sierramont is a very good school and like any other that strives for excellence, this school never stops trying...The Music Dept is a fave but the Math, Scence and English Depts are loaded with highly qualified and devoted teachers who try to bring out the best in their students...It is probably not the teachers but the students themselves that make this school, A CALIFORNIA DISTINGUISHED SCHOOL. If you think this school sucks you should go try other schools and compare.

Sierramont Middle School is the best middle school in San Jose. I've learned so much during my 3 years there. All the teachers are great at teaching and they all encourage you highly to do your best. Music program and sports are outstanding too. The school also received the California Distinguished School award, which i think Sierramont totally deserves! The students are all very nice and it's a very safe learning enviroment. I love SMS!

My son is in the 6th grade and so far everything seems fine but I also would prefer ALL teachers to update in progress grades via school-loop. We signed up for this service to keep track but only 2 subject grades are updated and we will only find out the grades at the trimester which is already too late to work with the kid.

My son is in eighth grade and Sierramont has gone through 3 different principals in three years. I worry that this constant change has hurt the school. Some of the teachers are terrific but some are really poor. It's a shame, Sierramont was a good school.

My son is 6 grader at Sierramont Middle school. His science and math teacher are great!!! They respone my concerns promply as I sent emails to them. I wish all teachers will post the student's grades to the school loops everyday so parents and teacher can follow up what going on.

The teachers and staff are great and go beyond what's required in order to help the students achieve. The material I'm learning in high school is so much easier because the teachers at Sierramont went more in depth and detailed in what they were teaching. Music program was excellent, sports and arts too. Although, school spirit was and still needs to be worked on.

the music department seems to be on track and the teacher is very responsive toward parents. the Science teacher is really intune with the kids learning process.However, The school seems to do little to support school spirit among the students. very low turn out at home games when compared to other schools. The campus needs a serious face life. dress code needs to be a liitle more rigid i.e sagging.

Academic programs are good. During the school year several teacher's have been reassigned to teach other subjects. This is confusing for students & parents. Inconsistent teachers. Music program is good. Art is good. Sports is unorganized and not much parent involvement or commmunication. Extracurricular activities don't see much only required classes for almost failing students. Not much parent involvement, not asked. Administration doesn't resolve student issues.

Sierramont is a California Distinguished School with high quality administrative and teacher involvement. Many teachers go above and beyond to help their students. The school has good parent involvement and works hard to supplement school revenue with relevant fund raising to keep programs and activities going.
