    "My son attended high school here, graduating in 2010. I was extremely happy with this school. After attending a large middle school, coming here, was, quite frankly, a breath of fresh air. The school had everything we had been looking for - small class sizes, individual attention, and a wonderfully dedicated staff. I have recommended this school to several families. This is quite a "hidden gem" in the Bay Area."

    "I comment on junior and high school program. This school is very horrible! First, the school do not have classes for students to choose. If students want to take another class, they have to read a textbook by theirself, and take the test.Second, students may take the same classes with the same level which they already took. For example, computer, drama, music, and art classes are repeated every year. Third, the school's system and teachers are not professional. In addition, tuition fee is really expensive and there are plenty of unsatisfied things there. It is not worthy to spend a lot of money to study at this school!"

    "This is our 2nd year at Sierra. We were scrambling to find a school once we didn't have much success with open enrollment in the public school system. We stumbled across Sierra and couldn't be happier. The teachers are so hand on and teach to the ability of each child. There is always one teacher and an aide. At present we have 13 kids in our kindergarten/1st grade class. Not only do the kids get along from kindergarten to 5th grade but the parents all know each other. We are a small tight community here."

    "My children attend elementary school at Sierra School. We have been very pleased with the quality of the elementary program here. The model is to allow every child to move at their own pace and master the subject before moving on. They are able to accomodate children above and below their grade level because of the small class sizes and the low student to teacher ratio. There is a teacher and an aide in each of the three multi-grade classrooms. The "pros" of the school are the small class size, low ratios and differentiated model. The teachers work hard to give each child the work that is right for them - they are what really make the program succeed. The curriculum includes not only the traditional academic subjects, but also a music and peformance program, art, PE and Spanish. We find that the children are very respectful of one another. The "cons" of the school are related to the size . There are less than 40 children in grades K-5, so the social experiences for children can be somewhat limited. It is not a deluxe campus like you would see at more expensive schools. But for us, the positive experience in the classrooms far outweigh these concerns."

    "My daughter absolutely loves it here. She adores her teachers & friends. It's an extremely small school with only 100+ students from K-12. You get lots of individual attention. Her class has 15 kids with 1 teacher + 2 aids. You get to know most of the parents and can have lots of play dates. They provide individual instructions/work time for math, phonics and reading according to your ability. Plus you get enrichment classes like Spanish, Choir, drama, computer, arts, PE, etc. They also provide additional fee-based after school classes like Lego, arts or karate. Overall it's a great little private school. The only 2 downsides I can think of is 1) lack of after school clubs, sports team or music band and 2) they use mostly standard teaching methods (which is no worse off than most public or private schools) but not enough hands-on or project-based as we would like."
