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.
