Sierra Lutheran has great teachers who are dedicated to helping their students achieve their highest potential. We just moved into our new building after seven years of fund raising, but the gymnasium is not finished. Winning this money would go a long way towards helping us complete the gym.

I love Sierra Lutheran High School because of the Christian atmosphere and because of the academics. Students are not only expected to behave in a Christ-like manner, but also expected to work hard at their academics too.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
