The new principal this year has some really good ideas for the school and has the children's interests and education at heart. There are some within the Tierrasanta community who feel that the 'military ...  Read more

I absolutely love this school. I'm now a sophomore & well into my 2nd year. I'm looking forward to the next couple of years at Serra!

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.
