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
The boys here sometimes act like they don't have brains, the teachers are nice and smart, and I give it four stars! ~Sixth grader
Sierramont is a great school!! My daughter is a 6th grader this year and she has blossomed so much while attending Sierramont. The teachers are great, the principal is awesome and my daughter is learning and thriving at this school.
Sierramont is a great school with a very helpful staff. I had two children go through this school and i have had nothing ut good experiences. The staff is new but has learned quick what our children needs. the teacher are dedicated to our kids. thank you staff for all you do. Great bunch of parents too!!
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 is a great school, but there are so many gang-related activities and some are the teachers aren't good at teaching.
Well.... Sierramont rocks! Everyone is awesome. Great school, students, and teachers
It's fun and the teachers are really nice. It's going to be sad when i have to leave for high school D:
Sierramont Middle School is the best school because of the teachers and students there. We always work our best to suceed in life. We always follow through in our goals no matter what.
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!
Sierramont provides a very comfortable learning atmosphere and adapts to each student's learning ability to guide them towards a splendid education. The staff is nice too!
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.
My Daughter is in Seventh grade and as issues have arised, I have gotten complete satifaction immediately. The Counselor and Teachers reponses are excellent,
Sierramont is the best school in san jose and the teachers are the best overall.
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.
Sierramont is a very well organized school. The music program is awesome and extra curricular activities are fun and enjoyable.
