From Prospect Sierra School

Prospect Sierra embodies several key assumptions in philosophy and daily practice: that learning is the pathway to personal growth; that school should be both challenging and joyous; that school is a community through which students, teachers, and parents develop trust, demonstrate cooperation, show respect, and acquire an understanding of the rights and needs of others; and that diversity, in its many human forms, brings quality and strength to our school. A rapidly changing global environment requires that students develop skills and acquire knowledge, while learning to define and solve problems creatively. A Prospect Sierra education provides students with daily opportunities to engage in a rigorous academic curriculum that also allows them to gain greater self-knowledge and to develop compassion and care for others. In a diverse and inclusive community, we provide a joyful environment that develops students’ life-long passion for learning.

    Their are not many clubs, but the GSA is great. The electives are unique and are taught by the academic teachers.
    This school is safe. They do everything they can to prevent bullying, but it does happen.
