Principal's Message

I am so happy that you would take your time to be on the Sierra Middle School web page and have an interest in learning more about our wonderful school. Sierra truly is an amazing environment for student learning. The staff is dedicated to making the middle school experience both engaging and fun for our students.
As the principal of Sierra my goal is to embed the concepts of Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships into all aspects of our school. Sierra is committed to having high rigor and expectations with all curriculum and behavior with our students. It is our responsibility to challenge our students to be the best they can be with academics and their behavior as they prepare to transition to high school. As a staff we recognize the importance of making class lessons relevant to middle school students. We realize they need to be able to connect with the topic to enhance their learning. Lastly, we know how important it is to build quality relationships with our students. Students need to feel safe each and every day when they come to school. It is imperative that students know they attend a school where the adults are invested in them as people.
My hope is students who have attended Sierra will enjoy their two years at our school and have long-lasting happy memories of middle school. If you are a family looking for a quality middle school experience, please enjoy our website and we hope you will consider having your child join the Sierra family.
