This school introduced me to some of the best friends I have ever had as well Science Olympiad. A competition that I still enjoy to this day. The most unique thing about this school is the magnet program. Kids from across the city can come to Sierra, even if they are not in the district, to be a part of the media or science program. I would always choose to go to Sierra because it prepared me for the future better than anywhere else would have.
I had a lot of fun on the trips we went on for the magnet programs but sometimes things went wrong and the teachers did not always react appropriately.
