I have put both my children through Sierra Vista. Mrs Wickum by far is the best principal I have ever seen. Her dedication to the school supersedes all expectations. Mrs Castro and Mrs Peters are two dedicated teachers who care about the children like they are their own. I enjoy all the PTA events they offer-especially the free after school activity classes and my kids loved the school dance last year. My children have been blessed to be a part of this school.
My daughter attended from k to 6. My son was part of the very first step-up pre school class and we moved away after he finished fourth grade. We experienced two great principals with mostly wonderful staff. Earned CA distinguished school right before switching principals several years ago and though the staff is mostly the same, looks like the demographic is changing....for the worse and the Eagle pride isn't the same. We supported our kids' teachers and classes several days a week, but stayed clear of the pta and their regular drama. Sad how those parents behave worse than the kids they claim to support.
There are those who love to teach...and those who like to teach. Sierra Vista has a number or both. If the city of Upland had more teaches like D. McLeod, A. Matthews, and C. Brown it wouldn't matter what school your kids attend and the world would be a better place!
