11 Parent Reviews for Sierra Vista Elementary School

My grandson is a sixth grader at Sierra Vista. Each year, I continue to be impressed with the quality of their teachers, resources and programs. Their music program, the walk through history sessions, as well as their connection with Stagelight Productions are most impressive.

Your experience will depend on the group of children in your child's class and the teacher.

I have found this school to have very few good teachers. I found with my child that these teachers are degrading and do not use enough positive reinforcement, in this day and age I am very disappointed. The only two good teachers are Mrs Gourley, Mrs. Griffen and Mrs Hirth

I agree with the comments that Sierra Vista is a wonderful school. My daughter has attended for 7 years and received an excellent education.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
