I myself went too this school for seventh and eighth grade. I love this school. Although I have moved too a different town right after middle school I still do miss thie school very much . The teachers are great, & they all care alot about the students and helping them with their needs. I recommend you all send your kids too this school !
I worked as a teacher at this school for one year and I can tell you that they have a number of excellent, dedicated teachers who take every opportunity to improve their teaching. I regularly saw the principal outside throwing the football with the students after school. The principal is a great leader and motivates the teachers, his staff, as well as parents. Of course, no school is perfect, but I would have no qualms about my child going to school here. Some 8th grade students take high school classes at the high school across the street. The only real negative that I can state is that there seemed to be a lot of fights breaking out among the students. Of course, it's 95% the same kids that are doing this over and over, so the vast majority of students are not involved.
Recognizing the students accomplishments at this age are very important, sometimes with parents being so busy they feel that their accomplishments to unoticed. Sierra provides teachers that offer constructive criticism and praise where needed. They acknowledge honor and high honor rolls with a breakfast for the family or a free dress day which is very important to students of this age. I commend the staff and faculty, especially the teachers at Sierra Middle School. My daughter at this school has learned to adjust to many classes, teachers, and courses, thus preparing her for high school. It is the best thing I could have done for her. Thank you Sierra Middle School, Keep doing what you do.
My son came from Stockton Unified and entered into Sierra late in the 7th grade. It was like a whole new world for him. The teachers really do care and they need your support. The administration staff is great! The principal is not all locked up in meetings etc. he's out there with the kids getting involved, playing with them, getting a beyyer understanding of who they are.This school wants your child to succeed not caring about what color they are. This school makes it possible for one to go to work knowing that your child is in good hands. Keep up the good work Sierra(Mary,Leah,Mr.Nicholas and Mrs.Hambrick)
