This school has been a nightmare to work with. My child has special needs but they are mostly ignored. I say mostly because we have had meetings but they have been no help but yet they do complain and want an instant fix instead of helping my child and using the tools we have given them. If you child has any learning issues or struggles in a particular area this is NOT the school for you because the teachers here simply cannot be bothered. You are either up to par or you are tossed aside. Not to mention APS as a whole is a joke when it comes to help for struggling students or special ed. Any bullying is ignored and the teachers simply tell the kids to stay away from the bullying kid. Once my child was punched in the chest, by a boy from another classroom while coming in from recess, and couldn't breathe. Her chest was bruised and all the duty teacher said was stay away from him. My child has been repeatedly bullied and called names and nothing has been done to stop it. Lunch is also terrible. The cafeteria here ALWAYS runs out of food! Every single day they do not have enough of something or another. Either they end up with some sort of alternate (usually not the alternate that is specified either) or they do not get their sides. My child and my child's friends have complained many times about being very hungry in class and after school because of this.

The teachers at this school have been wonderful so far. My daughter has been here for four years now, and she has been given many opportunities to succeed. The student teacher ratio is not that good, but APS all together is that way anywhere you go thanks to budget cuts and the not so "wonderful" governor.

This school has "Some" dedicated teachers, but from my understanding are laying them off at the end of the year and keeping the ones who don't care. The principal is not helpful in any way and ignores you when you need a meeting. I would not recommend this school to anyone with a child who has learning disabilities or those that are gifted, you will not get the support that is needed for these students to be successful.

The school staff is doing the best they can with the number of students they have. The teachers and counselor is helping my son to cope and to understand the expectations placed on a gifted child. The guidance counselor is one of the best I have worked with to date and I have worked with quite a few as my oldest is 38 while the youngest is 9 and there are 3 others in the middle. Plus I have foster children in my care. The school staff is definitely caring and always willing to help. As for the PTA a school can not be judged on the volunteers but the service of these volunteers needs to be appreciated.

Sierra Vista definitely has some dedicated Teachers! some is the operative word here. While we understand that the school is bursting at it's seams, the lack of parental involvement is disappointing. MAny PArents do wish to participate but are not welcome to do so by the PTA. the Principal does not encourage unity. children are bullied and the ones that get in trouble are the kids that are bullied.
