    Sierra Vista has an amazing staff teachers and Principal. Traffic has greatly improved. I am thankful to Mr Warren parent volunteers teachers who always ensure my kids' safety when I drop them off and pick them up. They never fail to inform me of any school events and important reminders through their telephone system. It is a great atmosphere and everyone is friendly. I highly recommend this school.

    I am very pleased with this school. There is always an open line of communication between parents and teachers I am always informed about my child's progress and I can feel an overall sense of pride and ownership of the school from the staff. I was also impressed by the principal's (Mr. Warren) urgency to give back to the community of Perris and involvement with our children's development and success. He and other staff opened the Boys and Girls Club of Perris and I am very happy knowing my son has such a strong supportive team around him to motivate him to succeed. Also Ms. Andrews (K teacher) is awesome! She was always supportive of my son and ensuring I was aware of his progress and let me know of ways to reinforce his learning at home. Great job Sierra Vista Staff.

    Excellent school! The teachers are amazing! My kids have had some great teachers at this school. Teachers who want your child to succeed. Teachers who listen to your concerns. Teachers who actually care about the student. Plus they have a very friendly office staff and the principal and vice-principal took the time to get to know my family and other families as well. Great school overall!

    Great school with great administration! The school as a whole have the students' best interest in mind. Parking issues have not been ignored and I have personally seen a significant improvement from a few years ago. They have a great faculty and a great personable principal! They take pride in their curriculum and encourage parent-teacher interaction. I am extremely happy with my childs progress within this school.

    When Sierra Vista first opened it had a horrible traffic problem. The main cause was not enough streets for the amount of students that feed both the elementary and middle school on the street. In 2009 I started as principal and told my parents I would do whatever it took to alleviate the traffic. In 2010 the promised traffic light was installed thanks to the city and a great team at the district office. With some better signage the reversing of flow in the parking lot the traffic light and great team work Sierra Vista now has a reformed traffic flow. The school has received numerous compliments on the improvement from parents district office personnel and visitors.

    Excellent teachers...my kids enjoy going to school everyday. They bring home challenging homework everyday couldn't ask for a better school for my kids to go to.

    It's a great school because i could tell how much they care about my children safety and their academic achievement. I would praise for all their dedication and involvement on my children behalf. You cannot ask for better staff and better principal because i don't think you would do what they did or still do for your child's safety.

    My daughter use to come to this school from 9/07-2/08 this was a great school teachers awesome but the are so un-organize before or after school. There should definetly be a cross guard up in the school not down at the bottom of the hill. I use to have to leave my house an hour and a 1/2 just to pick her up. In the early school year it was extremly terrible because it is way too hot you are either burning in the heat or wasting gas in the air condition there are no rules in that parking lot anyone can just drive in park in the middle of the lot and every thing is fine you wont get told to move we just have to wait untill that person decides to leave. This parking structure needs to be changed or handled better!!!

    Getting in and out of this school is a great hassle. Between the middle school and the elementary parents are having to wait for long periods just to pick up and drop off. You have too many adolescent kids interacting with the elementary kids. Not good! I wish we knew what the school was like before we moved to this city. Our mistake for not looking further into this. Good luck to the other parents.

    I am very displeased with this school and their systems. In order to pick up your child you need to arrive an hour before they get out and then sit in traffic for another 30 minutes. The teacher is very helpful but I feel the administration and the District don't have the children's best interest in mind. If they did I feel they would allow for a bussing system to relieve the traffic at least for the children's safety if nothing else. I would advise against this school unless you have a good hour every day to waste sitting in the parking lot waiting to pick up your children
