Well first and foremost my whole family, not including myself, goes to Sierra Vista Elementary. My wife teaches there, and both of my children are students. The other reason is very simple; Sierra Vista Elementary is all about creativity, focus, and taking what little scraps they receive and making the very best of it. The Teachers and Principle aren't present because it's there job and a paycheck is waiting for them every month. The Teachers and Principle at Sierra Vista Elementary motivate each other by exchanging the best practices and principles in teaching and how learning is best achieved, where the beneficiaries (The Students) reap the rewards with a proud history of raised test scores, and the promise of seizing all the opportunities that can mold them successfully into our leaders and teachers of tomorrow. Sierra Vista Elementary is the real deal and we need more schools like this one that doesn't never settles for the bare minimum!
My children have gone to this school for the past six years. The teachers here are outstanding; many of them have masters degrees. The two principals who have served the school during that time have done a wonderful job of getting parents involved and sponsoring community events -- international night, school carnival, morning mug, etc.
