Excellent school..highly recommend! My kids love it here! Wish the teachers were more interactive with the parents about things. That's about it.

This is an awesome school! The teachers really care about the kids. The staff is all very friendly and knowledgeable. Both our children go there and love it!! I truthfully could not be happier with Sierra Vista Elementary. The principal is also wonderful. I have personal seen him interacting with children, they love him. I would rate this school at a 10 ( rating 0 to 10..they would be on the highest 10 possible)

This is perhaps the worst elementary school I have ever experienced. The principal has no idea about how to educate young students, and his failure trickles down to students. Students with learning challenges and those who are above the curve are completely out of luck, as there is no leadership other than shutting down the effective teachers who try to teach outside of the box. New leadership is needed to put this school on the right track and allow the excellent teachers to do what they know best and remove the ineffective teachers completely.

Great active parents is what always makes a school great. Sierra Vista has those qualities. It is true that the principal is a bit distracted with her business at the mall, that could improve, but overall a great school!

Sierra Vista is an average school that fails to push students beyond average. Students who are at or above level coast along doing worksheets and test prep, then the school brags about their great test scores. The students' home life, outside enrichment, and upbringing is what creates the good scores, NOT the education they receive at this school. The principal does not understand elementary school children or children who are not athletic. There is more to life than football, a fact he has yet to learn. Communication with parents is poor, particularly about students' academic levels. I never received specific information about my children's reading levels, only "proficient" or "advanced". Most schools provide more info, particularly for beginning readers. There are few enrichments and few student programs and performances. Overall...a very average school with average leadership and above average students inflating the school's performance rating..

I am a very protective mother i love this school because they watch the kids very closely. My daughter is In prek there and they always make sure the doors are locked and that the children are signed In and out. At the begaining Of the year you fill out a sheet and only the poeple you list can pick up your children. This school is the best because you know your child is safe and protected.

My daughter has attended Sierra Vista since kindergarten. The academic programs kept her sufficiently challenged most of the time. The music and technology programs are excellent! I was kept highly involved in the classroom as a 'helper' until 4th grade. The students then took over a lot of the jobs we helpers had. I can't say enough about the office staff. They have gone above and beyond what their job descriptions have asked for on many occasions. My daughter feels safe at Sierra Vista. She knows that everyone there is looking out for her best interests.

This school is the best school ever! The teachers are very nice, and they have an excellent playground. This school loves parents volunteering, and has an availible choir and sports activities!
