    "I was previously a teacher at this school and it was one of the best schools I had been at. The administration was supportive and provided facilities that were adequate for learning. The teachers here really love the students and care about the kids."

    "Sierra PTA may have over 350 members but most were handed to us by AVCC and that membership number does not reflect the actual number of PTA volunteers. Only eight to ten parents consistently show up to help the PTA in any way and they, like the teachers, are getting burnt out. Parent support is a major key to student success - please step up and volunteer at your child's school!"

    "I'm a mom of two boys at Sierra. One in kinder and one in 3rd. My kids are learning so much, so fast. Its hard to believe they can learn anything in the size class rooms there in. So I want to thank all the Teachers for all the great work. My son scored advance on the state testing. He also had Honor Roll last year. Thanks again"

    "i find the PTA and 'mums matter etc are a perfect example of what parents should be doing to get involved in their kids school to make it better but the teachers seem burnt out and unenthusiastic, with participation verging on nothing, zero. My son is having issues with possible add, he is being tested. But there seems nothing that the school can offer under so many budget cuts.where art music drama p.e. and field trips are treated as a privelige and cut out of the curriclium as we suffer more and more budget cuts. Sierra students, were offered the chance to get extra tutoring by the school district but there were over 200 extra applications that were not able to be offered tutoring as the money ran out.my sons included. this is unfair and does not resolve the issue. I want to be proud of my sons school?"
