While I found Sierra Charter to be amazing and I truly do love it, I find I can only give this opinion for grades 7-12. The education for elementary school is somewhat lacking. The high school level however is above and beyond! The teachers are very helpful and know the material well. The academics are both well taught and useful in most cases. It was a very good high school experience and even though some might be overwhelmed(as it is independent study), if one takes advantage of the resources the school provides, it is a way better experience than a regular public school.

As a former student, I can sincerely say that my time at SCS was very rewarding. The teachers at SCS are an absolute delight; they care about what students think and feel, and they want everyone to succeed. I feel that I learned more in my four years at SCS than I would've at a more traditional high school. After graduating, I went on to enroll at a four-year university and I feel that my time at SCS was an integral part of my readiness and motivation to continue studying.
I love Sierra Charter. It has wonderful teachers that really care about their students. I receiveextra help when I need it. Teacher are always ready to help students succeed.
