Sierra Linda High school provided me with a great high school experience and I enjoyed it very much. My freshmen year attending this school, I was afraid because none of my friends went there so I had nobody to hang out with. In the first period on the first day of school, I met new people who were very welcoming and teachers who were down to Earth and were understanding and kind to me. I appreciated all of the teachers there for their hard work and dedication to my education. I joined various clubs that allowed me to connect to others that had similar interests as me and began making life-long friendships within my school. Sierra Linda was not a top tier school that provided much resources, but the teachers were extremely helpful and fully committed to our learning.

Sierra Linda is an amazing school. The staff members, the principle, the community, everything is so positive and everyone puts others first. The amount of help I’ve received is countless. The teacher’s effort and respect they have for students is so kind and they always reach out to students whom seem to have issues or problems understanding the subject. I have never seen anything like this before. Every student helps each other out like a strong, loving community. The atmosphere here is great and so welcoming. I enjoy coming to school here and everyday is something different. I would love to see this school recognized for such accomplishments and it just keeps going.
I've been at Sierra Linda for all four years. I love the environment, the friendliness, the teachers, the classes, the involvement, everything! I am well involved in clubs and sports. I love the programs they offer and the support from the teachers who actually care about students learning and progressing, It's like we're a family and you get treated with equality and respect. Something that I would like to see change would probably be the way the staff handles discipline and the students who can be disrespectful and a distraction to those trying to learn. Although I love the staff, I feel they need to be more strict on troubled students.
