    My daughter has loved every teacher she has had. The principal has a great reward system for high achievers. I love the sense of community. I will be sad to see Ms. Benson leave. I hope the new principal is just as good if not better.

    Great school great kindergarten teachers. I have my second one going to this school now and I feel assured that I have chosen the best for her.

    Sierra Vista is a wonderful school. Mrs Benson the Principal really goes out of her way to make sure that ALL the kids succeed. The teachers are committed and are excellent. I love how Mrs. Benson gets these kids encouraged and motivated with special prizes and she has a great attitude. I have 3 kids and now that my two older girls no longer go to this school they have wonderful memories. My son will be a 6th grader this year and we will miss this school when he leaves..

    Wonderful staff caring principal clean and nice grounds. Looks like test scores are going up every year over the past 5 years or so. Quite an accomplishment.

    My child has had an excellent school year (09-10) and have just good things to say!! I will be sending my younger child to kinder @ this school soon. Although I do wish the school would continue with the all day kinder program. Hope that will come back soon. And to the parent who wrote the bad review don't listen. No matter what public school you go to you will have your bad kids. It's up to us as parents to teach our children to cope with life problems. I do recommend this school.

    Sierra Vista Elementary School is clearly on its way to becoming an excellent school. The teachers are well-trained approachable and great with students. Even though the district music and arts programs have been cut the school staff really seems to make every effort to include them as much as possible in their classrooms. Parent involvement could be better but the parents that are involved do a great job.

    This school defintely needs more extracurricular activities for all grades. Parent involvement is quite decent although PTA envolvment is minimal. Needs major upgrade of playground equipment and library!
