Sierra High School is a relatively small mountain school of about 300 students. The school is of great significance to me because not only did my siblings and cousins, parents, aunts and uncles and grandparents graduate from this school, I am next. It has a great deal of tradition and love and connection to the students and community. Not only do teachers care about our education they care about our development as individuals. The adults and students on this campus have changed my views on how the world works in a positive way and have always pushed me to stand out, and with hard work and heart, success comes along.

Sierra High School had a lot of very understanding staff and a small community that paid attention to the little details. Given that we are a part of a small community the administration watch the children grow up from a young age and love to see them grow into responsible young adults.
Sierra's greatest characteristic is the people. The teachers genuinely care about the students and are often willing to go the extra mile to help committed students. While it may not be academically rigorous, I enjoyed my time there.
