    My daughter went to this school a few years ago she made close friends whom she still keeps in touch with. Had amazing teachers who would support her and the rest of her fellow classmates. She never complained about being picked on or bullied. My favorite thing about this school is how close knit and small it is it's an amazing learning environment.

    I love Sierra Madre Elementary School because of all the family involvement in school programs activities and the community.

    Sierra Vista is a wonderful school It is a very small school and that is what makes it wonderful. Has a new principal who is all about what is best for the kids. She encourages parent participation and has an open door policy for her staff parents and students which hasn't always been the case in this school with past principals.
