In the Sierra Vista Unified School District they have a variety of programs and after school activities were students can thoroughly learn and experience things that peak their interest. As a result, this allows students to show interest in school and look forward to something that will be well worth their time. The Sierra Vista School District also has an extraordinary ability to unite the community and make positive changes to help future generations succeed. I have loved being apart of this district and I hope that numerous other students will continue to support and cherish it as well.

There was no form of communication among student or parent regarding school events, specifically school registration, drills, and/or new school policy. The school was more worried about dress code and false tardies rather than informing parents/students about fire drills or bomb threats. The school would otherwise post said information on social media instead of informing parents via e-mail or phone call. But let the student be late to one class and the phone rings at 5pm to let the parents know about their child's misconduct.
Growing up in the Sierra Vista Unified School District, there were a decent amount of opportunities for elementary school students to excel by getting involved in community events. Occasionally you would come across some workers who you would wonder if they really liked their job. On the contrary, there were also teachers and staff members who you could tell really cared about their students. I wish the High School had more extracurricular opportunities to offer pertaining to interesting and marketable life skills.
