I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Sierra Vista High School! The teachers truly go above and beyond to offer any extra assistance that their students may stand in need of, which includes being in their classrooms thirty minutes before school starts and up to two hours after school ends, for any student to receive the help they are needing. The teachers also know how to apply their lessons into the real-world, and know exactly how to prepare their students for standardized testing and post-secondary education. The administration team for Sierra Vista is strongly committed to keeping the campus safe, and continues to add additional safety measures each year. I am greatly appreciative to the teachers and staff of Sierra Vista for providing me with an unforgettable high school experience, an experience that was definitely worth-while, and has prepared me for the real-world.

I went to Sierra Vista High School for my junior and senior year. I wasn’t too involved my junior year because it was my first year there but the classes and teachers I had were great. I did get straight A’s for the first quarter and the rest of the year a couple B’s but it was my best academic year.
Senior year I did decide to get involved that I ended up being honored with the position as President for the Pacific Islander Club. Also, I was apart of the Video Production Club where we’d make the school’s telecast.
I graduated with high honors and an advanced diploma. I’m grateful to be a SVHS Alumni!
I attended Sierra Vista in my sophomore year 2015, also my first year in the United States of America. Even though I didn't know any English, all my teachers and the principal helped me through my classes and in about 20 days I am graduating with above 3.0 GPA and I have been attending UNLV for the last 3 years (as a high school student) and all this is because of people who where my guidance in Sierra Vista High School!
